Everyone's Living Room in San Miguel de Allende

In San Miguel, the main plaza is called “El Jardín.” Anchored in front by the frothy Gothic church, La Parroquia, and lined on two sides by arcaded portales full of outdoor cafes and trendy shops, it functions as everyone’s public living room.
In the mornings, elderly men and women with rush brooms sweep the church courtyard and cobblestones on the traffic-free street. On wrought-iron benches under the laurel trees, retired gringos trade morning chit-chat. The Jardín is gossip central—where you learn what’s been happening… and who did it. Buy an ice cream cone, get a newspaper, sit in the sun, and wait for someone you met last night to walk by. Because almost everyone in town passes through the Jardín at least once a day.
Come back in the evening and the show stars locals enjoying the soft evening air—teenagers ogling each other, abuelas chatting on a bench while keeping an eye on wandering toddlers, young couples carrying babies. One of the mariachi groups is likely playing a birthday song or a rousing version of "Cielito Lindo." Just sit and soak it all up, because it doesn’t get any more “local color” than this.
When you get home from your stay, San Miguel’s Jardín will remain one of the most indelible images in your mind… and in your photo album.
