A haven for expats, San Miguel de Allende, or "San Mike" as the locals refer to it, is a sun-soaked town in Mexico packed with history and culture. While passing through, we stopped in downtown to admire the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel. The city's most iconic building, a Catholic parish, towers above the Spanish-colonial style buildings in the square.
After enjoying a refreshing margarita in the square, we went and explored a nearby open air marketplace, where local craftsmen were showcasing their wares. The market was bustling with artisans selling everything from craft stoneware to local delicacies.
After getting lost in the city's winding, hilly streets, we finished the evening at a rooftop tapas bar, Luna, enjoying cocktails and Oaxacan chocolate fondant while taking in the city's skyline.
