Why is San Miguel De Allende called the Heart of Mexico? You'll just have to listen to find out. Travel, food and culture writer Katy Spratte Joyce shares her tips on San Miguel De Allende, Mexico.
When planning a travel to San Miguel De Allende consider finding a cooking classes with a local chef. You will start in a market and turn your purchases into local cuisine. Katy always recommends exploring a local culture through your stomach. I agree. Feed me all of the food (and margaritas).
Walk of your meal by exploring the white wall mural project. Find a guide to help you navigate as the project is ongoing and murals will change. They will be able to provide you with the connection or significance the art plays to San Miguel De Allende, Mexico.
Katy's third tip is to explore the iconic city cathedral. My own request is to make sure you tour respectfully and not snap photography while mass is in session.
Not ready to leave the San Miguel De Allende yet? Plan a day trip through the local wine region (forth coming episode with Korrine Johnson on this). It's about an hour drive and provides an excellent way to bookend your trip with culinary delights. Check out this local Mexican winemaker: https://www.instagram.com/cava_garambullo/
