Mexico: San Miguel de Allende
San Miguel de Allende — Cradle of Mexican Independence
Founded in 1542 by Fray Juan de San Miguel, a Franciscan monk, San Miguel de Allende retains a rich colonial charm with its cobblestone streets and beautiful Spanish colonial mansions, many of which have been restored to their former splendor. It's a protected national monument; all new construction must conform to the colonial archictecture.
