Did you know that San Miguel de Allende is actually named after two different people?
The city gets its name from a friar named Juan de San Miguel and Ignacio Allende, a hero, and martyr of the Mexican independence movement.
One of the top things to do in San Miguel de Allende is to visit the home of the latter, which is now the city’s history museum.
The Museo Historico is open from Tuesday to Sunday and only costs about $3 US dollars to visit.
Spend an hour or so here and you’ll leave with a much better understanding of the city, its history, and its importance to the country.
