Atotonilco, Mexico

This morning Bill and I drove to the little town of Atotonilco. It’s located about 8 miles outside San Miguel and is the home to the Galeria Atotonilco and the Sanctuary de Atotonilco. We’re going back on Friday with some friends, but we wanted to make sure we could find the places we wanted to see. If you want to tour the Galeria, you must make an appointment, but the church is open everyday so we’re going to go inside the church on Friday and tour the galeria. The church is described as the “Sistine Chapel of Mexico” because it houses some beautiful frescos. For more information about the church/sanctuary, visit Wikipedia.

This Friday we’ll travel once again to Atotonilco on our way to Dolores Hidalgo. In the mane time, I hope you enjoy these photos.

Walking Around San Miguel de Allende

Bill and I took the car to be washed yesterday and decided we’d walk around the Ancha de San Antonio area of town. We found this wonderful old church which we were told is one of the oldest churches in town. We then visited our favorite store in town that carries candles, furniture, art and lighting. We call it Anvil because they use an anvil as their logo and have a large stone anvil at the front of the store. It’s real name is Casa Armida and their merchandise is stunning.
