Plenty of cool places to eat and drink. Lots... More

Stroll into San Diego if you're having lunch at the Jardin. It's a lovely church with an interesting history. Beside the Theater. On the weekend there are vendors selling artwork out front.

The undercroft of this church is a museum of colonial Mexico along with an art museum. The history of the building and the city are illustrated on its walls.

The estudiantinas with the white knee socks depart from this church. The church itself is a beautiful barrocial style in the historic district.

this was the first Cathedral we toured on our recent trip to Guanajuato. and I could not beleive how old it was. The details were facinating and intricate. I recommend visiting this historic place of worship. I ALSO RECOMMEND TOURING ALL THE CHURCHES IN THIS CITY AS THEY ARE WORKS OF ART. the prettiest one was across from the Mercado.

as soon as you walk in, all your senses let you know that you are in a church, the smell of the church, the candles flickering, the light just right, the sounds of muffled praying, and the way everything fits perfectly!!! not to much or too little. not to big or too small. like a perfectly maintained rare classic car...
