The Center of Mexico is an unusual land, with more than five centuries of history, full of colors, landscapes and traditions.
It's a geographic region where extremes coexist: from the millenary Pre Hispanic city of Teotihuacan, to the proud baroque churches of the colonial cities; from the template weather of the Central Altiplan, to the tropics nearby.
An endless land, a world in itself, the proof of a whole country in miniature; all in one same route and in the real Mexico.
Two hours North from Mexico City, we find the first stop on the colonial cities' route. Santiago de Queretaro, being the third most important city during the Viceroyalty, is nowadays one of the favorite places to rest in the center of Mexico.
Its Historic Downtown was declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO, due to its historic relevance and the insuperable sample of baroque architecture that its mansions, houses and temples offer.
It was here where Mexican Independence started. Surrounding the city you can visit, besides the Magic Town of Bernal and its incredible monolith, the picturesque town of Tequisquiapan, the nearby vineyards and the antique haciendas.
The center of Mexico is the heart of our country, meaning, the daily Mexico: schools and job schedules, family lunch and coffee by the evenings, church and parks on Sundays, religious parties, soccer and free-style box matches, bars. It is a cheered-up Mexico, full of colors and contrasts. A Mexico that is ours and one we are proud of; a Mexico that we always want to show off and share.
