World Heritage Area

Zona de monumentos

By Jesús Aguado

In 1982 San Miguel de Allende was appointed as a Historical Monuments Zone according to a decree signed by then president of the Mexican United States, José López Portillo, and published in the Official Newspaper of the Federation.

Zona A, within the yellow line, includes several buffer areas. These are spaces that must be protected as well. UNESCO appointed Zona A as a World Heritage Site on July 7, 2008.

The 9-page decree issued by the federation about the Historical Monuments notes that “any work of construction, restoration, or preservation in the Area of Historical Monuments can only be performed with a previous authorization requested by the owners before the National Institute of Anthropology and History.”

For more information about how to take care and preserve the zone, you can visit the Department of Cultural and Sustainable Heritage Department at City Hall.
