Culture – History – Gastronomy…

A tour designed and accompanied by Francine Tellier on one of her adoption lands since 2013.

A program that includes the following activities: discovering the city of San Miguel de Allende by walking, spending time in the historic center, seeing art galleries, admiring the murals, strolling through its markets and taking a leap in time by daring enter some of his “cantinas” (saloon). See some of its hidden corners at the end of courtyards, its elegant luxury places, its streets on the side of the mountain, all slopes and covered with “cobblestone” where it is good to have adequate shoes on appropriately, appreciate its architecture and colors. To immerse oneself in one’s life, rhythm and smells.



Balloon flight, private flamenco lessons, shows…



At the heart of a past and present history…



and possible meeting with renown artist of great talent …

Discover a colorful SMA day with its blue sky and, all yellow and romantic at night… take a walking tour of SMA guided by a local guide, a visit to the botanical garden El Charco del Ingenio, taste the authentic life of Rancheros living in the canyon, take a horseback trip and dive into the history of the far west, share a traditional meal, visit the unknown and very well kept pyramid of Cañada de la Virgen on the edge of SMA, spend a pleasant moment of relaxation in a site natural thermal baths, enjoy organic wines at Dos Búhos vineyard, visit the city of Guanajuato and the “ghost town” of Mineral de Pozos. A place that is reborn and where, with luck, we will happily meet my favorite group of pre-Hispanic music and dance.
