A Standout in Mexico

18 Sep

After a week off from Travel Tuesday photos, below is a pic showcasing one of my favorite cities in Mexico.  Guess the city and I’ll send you a gift.  It’s located in the far eastern part of the state of Guanajuato in central Mexico.  I’ll have more clues for you later this week.

Update: We got a winner! The photo below was taken in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  You might not know that San Miguel has been a beacon for foreign art students, especially former U.S. soldiers studying on the G.I. Bill after the Second World War.

The main attraction of the town is its well-preserved historic center, filled with buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries.

This and the nearby Sanctuary of Atotonilco have been declared World Heritage Sites.
