San Migel de Allende February 7


San Migel is about 6 hours from Ajijic towards Mexico City. It is a town known for it's colonial architecture and cobblestone streets (although we are finding most places have the cobblestone!). San Migel has a big population of foreigners from all over the world. We walked through the town, looking in the shops (expensive!) and taking in all the beautiful buildings. Below is the cathedral in the main plaza, built by the prisoners of war captured by the Spanish in the 1500's. It really is pink, the stone's natural colour!
