For a long time Queretaro's architectural wealth was out of the public eye because of tourists were misguided in their first-hand impressions of the city. In fact, Queretaro is a hard nut to crack as you need to get involved with this city to see its true worth. Sitting at the very outskirts of Mexico, the city's real wealth of pedestrian streets, beautiful plazas and colonial churches is obscured by its appearance as a sleepy town.
In reality, life in Queretaro is like something from the story of ''Sleeping Beauty'' – tranquil at first look it needs a light boost to explode with energy. You can make this city awake from slumber on your sightseeing tour there.

If you are looking for the source of Queretaro's magic then you need just to stroll it and embark on your own discovery.

But the most interesting is waiting for you after dining as Queretaro produces local drink called Pulque that is a must while in Mexico.
But Queretaro is more than just a sophisticated introduction to your dinner as the city is a showplace for legendary events. Thus, it served as the capital of Mexico during the Mexican War of 1847, saw the execution of Emporer Maximilan, and became a think tank for the Mexican Constitution accepted here.
