Guanajuato

Considered the birthplace of Mexico’s independence and one of the most beautiful and historical states

The central state of Guanajuato is one of Mexico’s most historical states and considered the birthplace of Mexico’s independence. Spurred by the discovery of gold and silver it was settled by the Spanish in the 1500s. Today, more than 16,000 U.S. expats now live mostly in the state’s two best-known cities, the capital Guanajuato City and San Miguel de Allende, drawn by their beautiful, colorful colonial architecture and quality of life. Guanajuato City is known for having some of the best street food in all of Mexico and is where the popular enchiladas mineras, or miner-style enchiladas, originated.
