They will meet you in the Jardín across the street from the Parroquia. The tour will last about two and a half hours and is mostly level walking.

In San Miguel, seeing is not necessarily believing. It is a town stock full of lovely old colonial buildings that add their charm to the city. However, many are not colonial—that is, built before independence from Spain in 1821—but were built after that. How can you distinguish between the antique and the not so old? It’s simple: take the tour! Your knowledgeable guide will not only show you outstanding examples of early architecture, but also the interesting styles that appeared after Independence right up to the present day Mexican modern. In addition to this monthly tour we offer Historical Walking Tours covering the downtown area every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The groups meet at 9:45am in the Jardin across the street from the Parroquia and leave promptly at 10am. The donation for this comprehensive tour is 200 pesos. All of our guides are volunteers for Patronato Pro Niños.
