ABOUT OUR ARCHITECTURAL WALKING TOUR

 

On the third Thursday of each month, we offer a special Architectural Tour of the downtown area.  This tour will be of interest to anyone who is at all curious about the fabulous buildings of San Miguel.  You’ll view buildings that represent more than 400 years of different architectural styles.  It is an architectural area frozen in time with laws to protect it. 

Your donation goes to support the work of Patronato Pro Niños.

The tour leaves from the Parroquia promptly at 10:00 AM and lasts approximately 2 ½ hours.  No reservations are needed, but we do limit the size of the groups.  Cost:  350 pesos
