This Thanksgiving, consider swapping turkey for tamales, potatoes for re-fried beans, or snowy winter weather for warm sunny climate and a gentle breeze.
Celebrate the pilgrims with a pilgrimage of your own to the Sanctuary of Atotonilco near San Miguel de Allende.
The chapel at this World Heritage Site was elaborately painted by artist Antonio Martínez de Pocasangre (the project took 30 years, in total).
His hard work earned the chapel the nickname of Mexico’s Sistine Chapel and the church is a brilliant example of Baroque art and architecture in the New World. Use your visit to give penance or to give thanks at the pilgrimage site.
And after your religious experience why don’t you just head down to “Las Terrazas” restaurant inside beautiful “Casa de Aves” estate, not 10 minutes away from Atotonilco.
This year, have a different Thanksgiving Dinner at “Las Terrazas”
And have dinner by a gorgeous pond where ducks swim and where you are literally surrounded by nature. “Las Terrazas” is absolutely the bes place to get away from the rest of the world for a moment, and let yourself pamper by their unique service and high quality cuisine.
At “Las Terrazas” they know how to blend ingredients to merge international food with products from the region.
