Chapels and Convents of the New Spanish Viceroyalty

Journey back into the early colonial period of the region of San Miguel de Allende, a time when the Spanish conquistadors began to dominate the indigenous Otomi culture, blending European Catholicism with Pre Hispanic tradition.

This unique, syncretic religious culture is most beautifully appreciated while accompanied by an expert anthropologist guide who will share expert knowledge, ancient wisdom and local legends surrounding the many chapels and temples built alongside the Laja River.
