What’s so special about San Miguel that attracts so many people?

Mexico has several pueblo mágicos (officially magic towns), an honour bestowed by the tourism department only on the country’s most enchanting corners, but one of its most captivating is San Miguel de Allende in Guanajuato state, three hours north by car of Mexico City. In fact, San Miguel is so special, it’s the proud owner of another accolade: it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008.

Having long attracted artists, expats and tourists, San Miguel de Allende, in the central highlands of Mexico, remains a firm favourite among Mexico’s many international visitors – and it isn’t hard to see why. The Baroque architecture (the highlight of which is the dazzling confection that is the pink cathedral), the colourful colonial buildings and the excellent restaurants are just the beginning.

The friendly locals are also part of the appeal – even taxi drivers, usually in a hurry, slow down to let tourists traverse the cobblestone streets gracefully. Everyone you meet greets you with a warm and enthusiastic, “Thank you for coming to San Miguel!”, and you get the feeling that they mean it. The city is always lively, largely due to its popularity as a wedding destination; fireworks regularly light up the night sky here. It’s also a firm favourite with American bachelor and bachelorette parties.
