The Queretaro old town plays host to major monumental treasures, leading it to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover its history with this free your. And it's free!
Our free tour of Queretaro begins in Plaza de Armas, in front of the central fountain. Here, a distinguished building with its whitewashed facade is sure to capture your attention, it's the Casa de La Corregidora: the current headquarters of the Governors Palace, which hides a turbulent past... for the moment suffice to say that it once served as a prison...
Then our tour continues in the Zenea Garden square, where we'll see one of the most important religious monuments in this part of the city: the Temple of San Francisco, an ex-convent with an equally long and storied history. Our next stops will be in the charming constitution square, and in front of the Theatre of the Republic. This last spot has played host to major historical events, such as, among others, the official premiere of the Mexican national anthem in 1854.
Then to conclude our free tour of the historic centre of the city, we make our way to some of the other key spots in the old town, such as the Queretaro cathedral. Consecrated in honour of Saint Felipe Neri, this is a temple with a long colonial legacy.
