Villa de Santiago

The charming cobblestone lanes and elegant colonial architecture of Villa de Santiago have earned it a place on Mexico’s list of ‘Pueblos Mágicos’ or ‘Magic Towns’ - traditional towns known for their unique culture, history and heritage. The architectural highlight of Villa de Santiago is the baroque church of Iglesia Santiago Apostol, which dates back to 1854, but there are a number of other attractions, including the grand fountain and pavilion of bustling Plaza Ocampo, the fascinating Santiago History Museum, a colorful handicrafts market and an excellent range of restaurants known for serving up some of Nuevo Leon’s best cuisine.

Less than half an hour from Monterrey, Villa de Santiago is also strategically located for exploring nearby sights like La Boca Dam, a popular summer swimming spot, and the Cola de Caballo, or Horsetail Falls, where activities include hiking, horseback riding and even bungee jumping.
