In the nearly 500-year history of San Miguel de Allende and its more than 50-year history as an arts center, there has not been a book like this that, in words and pictures, gives a well-informed and comprehensive look at the city many consider the prettiest and most interesting town in Mexico. Illustrated with more than 200 color photographs of the architecture, celebrations, activities, details and people of the town, the book will be a memorable souvenir besides being an uncommon guide. A resident of San Miguel for more than a dozen years, Robert de Gast at last provides an in-depth look at the many aspects of this popular enclave of expatriates from many nations, and the scores of tourists who delight in the civility, climate, community, and culture of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
