Pueblo mágico Santiago, Nuevo Leon

This is an awsome little town very close from Monterrey area. Santiago has great restaurants and a very romantic downtown, with narrow streets, and great views.

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.

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.
