The Silver Cities

The silver cities background.jpg

Explore the colonial heartland of central Mexico in such beautiful baroque towns as Guanajuato, Queretaro and San Miguel de Allende, where art and literature are inspired by its beautiful surroundings.

This collection of pretty towns and cities amid the rolling hills of the central valley were founded by the Spaniards on the riches of nearby silver mining and still stand as beautiful examples of that rich colonial era. Recognised as the region that sparked the Mexican revolution in 1911, Mexico’s colonial heartland evokes sentiments of liberation and revolution and is still looked upon today as a source of national pride and independence. Old mansions now house art galleries, restaurants, museums and gorgeous boutique hotels. Stroll along cobbled streets where you may stumble upon some live music or performances in a park or restaurant and get happily lost amid a maze of narrow alleyways and discover little tiendas, cafés and galleries tucked away.
