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

I made an effort to battle traffic on a Saturday afternoon to drive from Monterrey to Santiago. It was worth the effort. I'm top of the hill there's a beautiful old town with plenty of Restaurants and beautiful church.

Pueblo de santiago is a great choice if you have a full day free, in weekends the road to get there is full so I recommend to go in weekdays, I don't know if some restaurants and attractions are open everyday but I recommend to check in advance in their official facebook pages. I recomend to eat al Las Palomas... More

Nice a peacefull town, where you can eat, walk and take a break on you daily activities, in Santiago downtown you have all kind of amanities from modern life in a rustic town, restaurants, bars, banks, ATM's, also can have a full view of the town from the top of one of their highest street, rates are fare and people...

This is a town stuck on its roots. Here you will see how it was before and are able to see the history of the town and country. a nice cathedral sits in the middle of the town square where behind you can see points of interests and over look a landscape. Nice place to go eat as well
