The center of the city is so beautiful with many wonderful stores, galleries and restaurants. El Jardin is peaceful and a great place to sit and admire the beauty of your surroundings and all of the friendly people.

I love San Miguel de Allende and one of the main reason is the Centro region of the town. Such a fun place, great restaurants around, the beautiful church and the overall ambience makes it my top pick.
