Located in Guanajuato, this World Heritage Site was founded as a mission in the 16th century. It later became an important crossroads between mining cities. It played an important role during Mexican Independence, which is why the surname of the rebel Ignacio Allende, who was born here, was added to its name.
During the decade of the 40s, many North Americans started to travel to San Miguel to take courses in art, culture and Spanish. Most of them established themselves there permanently and they created a very active and artistic North American community. This city is an obligatory stop for painters, sculptors, chefs, designers and writers, or it becomes their permanent residence.
