San Miguel de Allende is a small colonial town in the Bajio mountains of central Mexico, about 170 miles northwest of Mexico City.

The town was declared a national monument in 1926 and building became heavily restricted in the town’s historic centro district, allowing the city to keep its colorful native facades. Its historic center and its church complex (Sanctuary of Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco) are together a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A series of artist colonies were founded in San Miguel in the 1950s, and since then the city has become popular with foreign artists, retirees business owners, and others.

The above, combined with wealthy Mexicans escaping Mexico City, has resulted in an eclectic mix of Old World Mexican charm, Western hospitality, and a lively and cosmopolitan atmosphere.

The Sanctuary of Atotonilco

The main feature of the religious complex is the rich Mexican Baroque mural work that adorns the main nave and chapels. This was chiefly the work of Antonio Martinez de Pocasangre over a period of thirty years. The mural work has led the complex to be dubbed the "Sistine Chapel of Mexico."
