San Miguel De Allende’s Quebrada Street: a vibrant part of the city

Among the numerous color-drenched byways radiating out from Zona Centro in San Miguel de Allende, newly en vogue Quebrada Street offers a mix of shops, exceptional cuisine, and sequestered dwellings.

The narrow cobblestone street stretches from Canal to Los Órganos streets, about a ten-minute walk from El Jardin, the artfully landscaped green heart of the city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Surrounded by a mix of architectural styles—Colonial, Baroque, Neo Gothic and Moorish—the street is a favored local passage in a town that regularly tops Condé Nast Traveler’s “Best Small City in the World” list.

“Walking along the street and in the surrounding neighborhood, it’s like being in Firenze,” says Claudia Nochebuena, a Realtor with CDR San Miguel. “From the Quebrada Bridge that crosses over Canal Street, you can see Las Monjas,” (the Nuns)—the local name for the Church of the Immaculate Conception, a residence for sequestered nuns. The church is among the city’s most popular with its grand dome and bell tower.

During the past five years, Quebrada has become a vibrant destination with boutique hotels, fine dining, an art gallery, butcher shop, retail, and florerías. While it’s immersed in café culture, there are also numerous chances to grab a snack—at street-side pollo rosticerías, or you can pick up gorditas or churros from vendors beneath the Quebrada Bridge.

“You can get lost in the alleyways that break off from Quebrada,” Nochebuena says. “There are hidden shops and restaurants tucked in here and there—wonderful niches that you stumble upon.”

In short, easy living Quebrada Street is steps away from the main tourist attractions, but without the hassles of congestion.
