Where to go in Central & Colonial Mexico
For centuries Guanajuato was the wealthiest city in Mexico thanks to the silver and gold pouring from its mines; today its riches reveal narrow alleys, churches, museums and buildings in a riot of colours and symmetries.
Located high on the Mexico's central plateau, Mexico City is the country's economic and federal heart, a pre-Hispanic settlement built on the ruins of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan.
Morelia was one of the first cities founded after the Conquest, and despite its large indigenous population, feels Spanish - with broad streets of 17th-century mansions and outdoor cafes sheltered by arcaded plazas; the colonial architecture captivates visitors and locals alike.
