Just 20 minutes from San Miguel de Allende is La Huerta, a hidden community that is reached through a 400-meter-long tunnel, where there is a Sabino or Ahuehuete tree that is more than 450 years old and is considered the second thickest trunk in Mexico, only below the Tule Tree located in Santa María El Tule, Oaxaca.

This Sabino has grown to excessively large dimensions because a spring runs beneath its roots that have nourished it and remains leafy, which is why it has reached a circumference of approximately 20 meters (10 meters in diameter), in such a way that to embrace it It takes 20 people joining with extended arms.

It is frequently visited by tourists who come to admire this leafy, giant, and long-lived tree, so, already knowing the way, there are those who have the habit of visiting it regularly to admire the majesty of this Ahuehuete and have a pleasant time in contact with nature in its surroundings.

If you want to visit it, you will have to take the road that goes from San Miguel to Celaya, at the detour to Guanajuato you will have to detour in the direction of the Allende Dam and once at its curtain make a “U” turn to take the Old Railway path that passes through the La Huerta tunnel, which has a height of 7 meters, 5 meters wide and 400 meters long.

When leaving the tunnel you will have to take the path that passes next to the Laja River, until you reach the La Huerta community. Once there, you will have to climb a 500-meter cobbled path, until you reach the area of the spring that gives life to the famous Sabino.
