The weight of Mexico's epic history lies behind the tourist landscape
We will take you to 5 cities of great importance in Mexico's history and World Heritage Sites
It is a tour unique to me with outstanding mobility.We will visit a total of XNUMX tourist destinations in XNUMX days and XNUMX night, including the world famous Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende, and the XNUMX World Heritage towns of Queretaro and Morelia.Apart from their world-famous aesthetics, these towns have played an important role in the process of becoming a modern democracy.By knowing even a little bit of its history, you can get a deeper understanding of today's Mexico.
Depending on the time, it is possible to stop by the monolith Bernal, said to be the 3rd tallest monolith in the world, on the way.If you climb about 40 minutes one way, the scenery from there is just a superb view.It seems to be said to be a power spot, and if you look at the scenery from above, you will surely be energized.
For meals, we will guide you to the famous barbaco taco shop and the local cuisine of Michoacán, which is a world intangible cultural heritage.Please give it a try.
The city center of Queretaro, whose construction began in 1532, is beautiful and a great place to stroll and have a cup of tea. There are 1400 historical monuments, and the layout of the town is a World Heritage site that retains the original layout of the time when the Spanish and locals coexisted.There are many stalls on weekends, and it is good to walk while looking at the small items sold, and it is also good to walk while snapping pictures of the beautiful townscape.It is easily accessible from the surrounding major cities, and once developed as a base for supplying goods to surrounding towns, but as the development progressed, water quality deteriorated, and water was drawn from the mountains to the east of the town.The aqueduct used for it is still a symbol of Queretaro City today.The existing one is about 1200 meters long, but it used to carry water from about XNUMX kilometers to the center of town.
Guanajuato is known as "the most beautiful city in Mexico".Even though it is called a city, it is a small town, but it is the capital of the state of Guanajuato, and the state government building is also located here. It was the site of a fierce battle during the Revolutionary War of 1810.The town of Dolores Hidalgo, about 50 kilometers northeast of Guanajuato, is where Father Hidalgo"Vamos a matar gachupines!"It was the starting point for accelerating the movement toward independence.The underground space, which was once created to contain the flooding of the Guanajuato River, is now a maze-like underground passageway that has become an indispensable infrastructure for the lives of the residents.It's a small town, so you can get around on foot.How about some baked majolica (Mayólica) as a souvenir?We can also take you to the workshop.The famous selbin pottery workshop is about 3 hours away from Guanajuato city.
Dolores Hidalgo was the starting point of the independence movement.As a tourist destination, Guanajuato and San San Miguel de Allende are less well-known, but today's Mexico wouldn't exist without this place! ?It may be a town of historical importance.It is also the birthplace of José Alfredo Jiménez, the master of Mexican music and music, making it an unforgettable place in Mexican history and culture.The church in the center can be said to be a place where history has changed greatly like Nijo Castle in Japan.
The name of the town comes from José María Morelos, one of the heroes of the Mexican independence movement.The government of Michoacán makes it one of its priority policies to attract tourists by making use of its abundant tourism resources, such as the state capital of Morelia and Patzcuaro, which is 50 kilometers to the west.The center of Morelia is especially beautiful at night, and you can relax just by drinking tea without walking.Also Michoacán has a lot of traditional sweets.Michoacán has a long history of craftsmanship and a wide variety of handmade crafts.From Morelia, it's only about an hour away from Tsintuntsang and Patzcuaro, which were capitals of the Prepecha culture in the west, so please take a trip.We can also take you to a local restaurant in Michoacan, which is also registered as a UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage. (The shop does not have a signboard, so it is a high hurdle to go by yourself.)
San Miguel de Allende
Named after one of the heroes of independence, Ignacio Allende.There are many foreigners from North America, and the city is well-maintained and is a popular tourist destination.
Peña de Bernal is said to be the third tallest monolith in the world.Rock climbing is required to reach the summit, but two-thirds of the rock can be reached on foot.
