Explore the origins of San Miguel.


We start the day going to the archaeological site of Canada de la Virgen to see the pyramids built around 1, 500 years ago by the natives. When we get there, a bus will take us to the site, then we have to walk 1 kilometer (3, 300 feet) to see the pyramids. In that area we will have an idea why the natives decided to buit the pyramids there, and the relation with the sun and the moon. We will be a bit more than one hour exploring the site, then we walk back to the bus that we will take us to our car.

Then we will have lunch with Rossana, to eat handmade tortillas, and delicious food made by local women who know how to use the ingredients that grow in this region, and have been used by the locals for hundreds of years.

Once we have lunch we will head back to San Miguel to see the highlights of the town, such as the parish church of San Miguel, the former convent of La Concepcion, the area where the town was founded in the 16th century, and the artisans market.

A Recent Review of this tour

Aaron is fluent in English and is a licensed Mexican tour guide, specializing on the central highlands. He is well versed in in the history and cultural of the people groups populating the area. The archeological site, and the structures built to record and predict solar and lunar events, were amazing. The archeological visit was followed by an wonderful meal of authentic foods, which was a treasure not soon to be forgotten. The tour was exceptional and we highly recommend Aaron. Well done!!!
