Wednesday, May 3rd, 10AM 
60 USD/1200 pesos

Enjoy, up close and personal, what makes San Miguel de Allende the epicenter of both the cult of cross and witchcraft because from an indigenous mindset anything good (the cross) will have a corresponding not so good (witches).   Join the celebration that starts May’s cross fiestas in our oldest neighborhoods.  This well attended fiesta includes food and a blessing (if desired) by the woman that runs the ancient chapel.
