House and Garden Tour, San Miguel de Allende

Biblioteca Pública
San Miguel de Allende
Tel: 52 415 152 0293's insider take:

This fascinating tour starts every Sunday around noon at the Biblioteca Pública in the city center. The tour began some 50 years ago and now has more than 300 houses on the roster, including artist studios, stunning contemporary mansions, and simple adobe homes. Each week's tour itinerary is posted online and in the weekly English-language newspaper Atencíon. One recent addition is Casa de Margah, a new home with architecture reminiscent of Luís Barragan and Frank Lloyd Wright, and an impressive art collection. The two-hour jaunt, which uses public buses for transportation and requires some walking, costs 200 pesos (about $16).—Maribeth Mellin
