Mexico World Heritage Iconographic Exhibition
By Guadalupe Meza
From July 4 to July 11 at the Historic Museum of San Miguel de Allende on Cuna de Allende 1, you may visit the allusive iconographic exhibition of 10 Mexican cultural heritage of humanity UNESCO cities. These jewels are Ciudad de México, Xochimilco, Oaxaca, Puebla, Querétaro, Morelia, Zacatecas, Guanajuato, Tlacotalpan, Campeche, and San Miguel de Allende. The exhibited works have been created by San Miguel architecture students from the University of León.
The exhibition is free and will be held in honor of the eighth anniversary of the declaration of San Miguel and Santuario de Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco as UNESCO sites and as part of the fourth National World Heritage Conference in San Miguel de Allende. This year the medal will be awarded on July 7 to Guanajuato’s journalist Cristina Pacheco and Doctor of History Miguel León-Portilla. The conference will be attended by honored guests from Quito, Ecuador; Xochimilco, Cultural Heritage of Humanity; and the Pueblo Mágico of Dolores Hidalgo, C.I.N. This neighboring city will offer a free concert with the brass ensemble of the “Esperanza Azteca” Orchestra from La Cuna de la Independencia Nacional, the Cradle of National Independence.
During this celebration, from July 3 to July 10, at Casa de Europa across from the San Francisco church in centro, we will also enjoy the cultural and artisan exhibition “Dolores Hidalgo en San Miguel.” There will be complimentary wine tasting, exquisite homemade ice cream, and Otomí snacks daily from 11am to 2pm and from 5 to 7pm. We will also learn about the tourist attractions of Dolores Hidalgo, C.I.N.
