A place you should visit !

Queretaro City is characterized for its colonial architecture and its beauty.

This city wasn't in my list of places to visit, but when I visited for the first time, I was amazed with the beauty places I found and i fall in love. Is a "must visit" place if you are around the area, take a day or two and discover Queretaro. Is worth it, is just 2hr away from México city.

The Aqueduct

The Aqueduct with 74 arches is Symbol that identifies the city of Querétaro.

It was begun in 1726 and concluded in 1735 in order to supply drinking water to the city from the springs of the Cañada. This work was achieved thanks to the generosity of Sir Juan Antonio de Urrutia y Arana, Marquis of the Villa del Villar del Aguila. It is composed of 74 arches of quarry that reach a maximum height of 23 meters and a length of 1280 meters.

La Casa de la Marquesa

If you haven't fall in love with the parks, streets and Churches in the historic centre, you'll definitely fall in love when visiting "La Casa de la Marquesa" is not only a historic place, but also a piece of art!
