San Miguel de Allende is a small city located in the state of Guanajuato, in Mexico's mountainous bajío region. The bajío (low place) is actually about 2000 m (7000 ft) above sea level, but it is a relatively flat region surrounded by mountains; it is a part of the Mexican altiplano. San Miguel serves as the administrative seat for the surrounding municipality of Allende, Guanajuato.
The city was founded in 1542 by a Franciscan monk as San Miguel El Grande. It was an important stop over on the Antiguo Camino Real, part of the silver route from Zacatecas, Zacatecas.
The town featured prominently in the Mexican War of Independence. General Ignacio Allende, one of San Miguel's native sons, was a leading player in the war against Spain for independence. Allende, captured in battle and beheaded, is a national hero. San Miguel el Grande renamed itself "San Miguel de Allende" in 1826 in honor of his actions.

I had only been to "beach Mexico" before my trip to San Miguel so I did not know what to expect. San Miguel is truly an amazing place. So much history and beauty. I just adored all the colorfully painted buildings and doors. Bring lots of film! There is every type of restaurant imaginable and around every corner is a wonderful site. Be prepared to walk alot on cobbled streets, so bring comfortable shoes. This isn't the place for slinky sandals. Don't even think about driving...leave that to the very reliable cab drivers.
