Bring an Extra Suitcase:
San Miguel de Allende is a world class shopping destination, with abundant specialized shops and galleries offering local arts and crafts as well as products coming from other areas of Mexico. Local crafts include metalwork, papier mache, hand-blown glass, stained glass pottery and furniture. The many artists who make this city their home fill the city with beautiful details and offer their work for sale.
As you wander the streets of San Miguel, you may not be able to resist entering the quirky or elegant shops and boutiques that you'll inevitably pass. Zocalo, La Calaca and Tesoros are boutiques that specialize in Mexican folk art, but you will come across many others as well. Even if you weren't planning on buying anything, you may find you need an extra suitcase to carry all your purchases home.
You'll find the best deals at San Miguel de Allende's handicrafts market. Located near the Mercado Ignacio Ramirez, along Andador Lucas Balderas between Calle Colegio and Calle Loreto, this market takes up three city blocks and is full of stalls selling regional products. Don't be shy to bargain, it's part of the fun!
Just a ten minute walk north of the city center, a 19th century former textile factory has been converted into an arts and design center. Fabrica La Aurora has artists studios and galleries, and furniture and interior design stores. Several of the artists who have studios here offer art classes. There's also a cafe and restaurants, so when you get tired you can take a break and enjoy a quiet moment until you're ready to shop some more.

San Miguel de Allende
Come to the Garden Parties:
Like most Mexican towns, San Miguel de Allende has a main square that is a lively hub of activity. Unlike most Mexican towns, instead of being called the zocalo or Plaza de Armas, in San Miguel the main square is called el Jardin Principal. Jardin, which means "garden" is a fitting name for this square which is full of carefully trimmed laurel trees and other greenery. Plentiful benches invite you to have a seat and watch the people go by. A kiosk in the center of the Jardin provides a space for live music performances. This is the meeting place for expats and Mexicans alike, and the perfect spot to while an afternoon away, or spend an evening enjoying live music and the animated social life of this colonial town.
The Jardin is surrounded by remarkable colonial buildings, and traffic is closed to all but the north side of the square. The municipal government office is located to the north. On September 17, 1810, the First Council of Independent Mexico took place in this building, with independence leaders Hidalgo and Allende presiding. There is a tourist information office here where you can get a free map of the city and information about current events. To the east and west there are buildings with high arcades. You'll find cafes and restaurants, along with vendors set up in the shade of the arches.
The Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel is located on the south side of the Jardin. This multi-spired church is the iconic symbol of San Miguel de Allende. Its dusty rose Neo-Gothic facade is unique in Mexico. The church was built in the seventeenth century, but the distinctive facade was added later, in the late nineteenth century. Zeferino Gutierrez, an indigenous bricklayer and self-taught architect was in charge of updating the facade and it is said that he was inspired by postcards depicting gothic churches in Europe.
The Jardin has free wifi, so take your laptop to check your email, or better yet, leave your electronic devices behind and immerse yourself in the vibrant cultural life of San Miguel de Allende.
