Historic Downtown of Santiago de Queretaro


Besides its sumptuous architecture of the civil and religious buildings of the XVII and XVIII centuries, the original urban trace stands out. The tracing of its streets shows the mixture of races that operated during 400 years: from Corregidora to La Cruz temple, the urban trace was thought by the natives, it is organic and free, without reticule, from Corregidora to Tecnológico Avenue you can appreciate the European nature, the uniformed design, not a perfect one, but a regular indeed.

The colorful and picturesque architecture of our capital city’s Historic Downtown is a Mestizo fusion of indigenous and Spanish influences par excellence. Originally settled over 450 years ago, the golden age of the 17th and 18th c. graced this gem of Nueva España with many ornate civil and religious Barroque monuments.
