Founded in 1542 by a Franciscan monk. Ruled by the Spanish for 300+ years. Declared independent from Spain in 1810. Rediscovered by foreign artists and students in the 1930s. Filled with well-preserved 16th and 17th century buildings – and perched amidst the Bajio mountains 6,400 feet above sea level – San Miguel has been enchanting tourists, historians, and artists for nearly a century. With so much beauty and taco-based cuisine at your fingertips, you’re sure to be enchanted, too.
