Explore San Miguel de Allende’s oldest neighborhoods set aside by the Spanish for the indigenous (Centro was for the Spanish).  We’ll climb up and up to enjoy panoramic sunset views of the city while learning why we are the epicenter for the cult of the cross.

The tour will end in Valle de Maiz which hosts the final, and biggest, fiesta honoring the cross in the month of May.  There will be dancing, music, climbing greased poles for prizes, reenactments of battles between the Conquistadors and Chichimecas and often, an appearance of a St. Martha’s dragon. 
The walking is marginally strenuous and off the beaten paths.  The fiesta is rarely viewed by foreigners though it is my favorite and one I perform at each year!
