• Queretaro offers great Mexican local pride

    2011-07-07

    Besides the beaches, Mexico also offers a host cultural attractions and thrills to tourists planning a North American Trip. The town of Queretaro was a place of civil aggression in the 1800s, but now enjoys a peaceful phase that's stunning in tradition and style.

    Due to Queretaro's weather usually being mild and favorable, a stroll through the town's aqueducts may be a walk back in time. Built in the 1700s, they contain more than 70 arches that can reach up to 75 feet high, reports The Los Angeles Times. The 19th-century chapel that resides on the nearby hill, called the Pantheon of Illustrious Queretanos, may provide the best view of the stunning architectural design.

    The land on which the city rests has been a site for ancient tribes and Spanish occupation. The Museo Regional hosts various unusual historical artifacts, including the table on which the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, ending the Mexican-American war in 1848.

    Fans of Mexican cuisine will not be disappointed in Queretaro. At the San Miguelito restaurant, patrons can order the beef filet with a savory mesquite sauce. Décor is a hodgepodge of colors and hand painted decorations that brighten the cheerful ambiance.
