Santiago is a beautiful, colorful and a very clean town. Take a walk around to experience its atmosphere. From downtown there is an access to an area where the sight is spectacular. Both to the mountain ranges and to Presa la Boca.

If you're in Monterrey, Mexico for a few days, try to get to Villa de Santiago, preferably on a Sunday for a taste of Old Mexico. You need to visit the Main Plaza in front of the town's church on the hill. You may be treated to music in the Plaza or a "fair" where venders are selling traditional toys,... More

It have a great lookout where you can see Presa de la Boca (Boca Damn) and part of the town. It has a little plaza and a lovely church. It has a lovely architecture all around... More

This is a small beautiful town about half an hour away from Monterrey, with a nice square and streets but specially good food, you should totally visit for the morning if you have time in Monterrey.

The church is fairly typical of many smaller churches in Mexico however this one has magnificent town and mountain views. Excellent condition inside and out.

If you are looking for a refreshing outing away from Monterrey, the colonial hill town of Santiago may fit the bill. About an hour's drive, it's a cobblestone-street town filled with restaurants and shops. Centered around -- come on, guess it -- a central plaza and a towering cathedral. Really nice. Also, the highway to Santiago is filled with unique... More
