Casa Hidalgo Historical Building
Miguel Hidalgo stayed at this house in 1810. Mexico’s Founding Father spent the night here on the eve of the Battle of Aculco on November 7th. This is also where the insurgents suffered their first defeat during the War of Independence.
Father Hidalgo is said to have led mass the next day underneath the Palo Bendito tree in order to give thanks for surviving the battle.
