The city of Leon is quite close to the state capital of Guanajuato which has the same name. Travelling there is like stepping back in time; the city is remarkable and offers visitors an authentic colonial experience amidst one of the most picturesque colonial backdrops to be found anywhere in Mexico. Guanajuato is clean, tidy, and very safe. Its cobbled streets twist and turn, so just walking around is an adventure. The city’s maze-like layout often creates opportunities for serendipitous encounters, with visitors discovering things they had never planned to see, but are glad they did.
San Miguel de Allende is one of the most popular towns in Mexico both among Mexicans and the foreigners. It is located 100 kms from Leon. The town is a Unesco world Heritage site since 2008. It has a big expat community for that reason its colonial center is full with restaurants and bars. Despite being a small town, San Miguel has lots to offer and discover.
