The locals have long frequented "balnearios" and 600 hot springs bubble up around the country. Tequisquiapan, an enticing cheese and wine-making region in the state of Querétaro, is the perfect destination for those wanting to pair their hot springs experience with a delicious gourmet escape.

Preserved as UNESCO heritage, the center is beautiful, clean and lively. Discover it walking, enjoy live music (and people dancing on the squares in the evening), nice buildings. Many good restaurants are located in this area.

Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Viterbo

Reviewed By RicherTrips - Monterrey, Mexico

From the outside, it´s intriguing, with a mixture of styles,(baroque, neoclassical, mudejar) buttresses in one side and a lateral gate. But you´ll be surprised with the inside. It has many altarpieces and reredos, all covered in golden leaf on both sides and in the back, but the main altar was replaced with a Neoclassical one, probably after a fire or earthquake. Take the time so observe each of the altars, so full with details.

La Pena de Bernal

Reviewed By radar60 - Lompoc, California

the claim to fame of Bernal is la Pena, one of the biggest monolith rocks in the world. It's a steep hike but very popular. The town itself is buzzing with tourists and there are little shops and restaurants everywhere. Definitely worth a visit. .

Plaza de Armas

Reviewed By AnnW1946 - New Canaan, Connecticut

I love this plaza. It has two of the best restaurants in Queretaro at one end. The Fountain has four dogs on the corners. The water comes out of their mouths. Very nice. There is music and sometimes magicians in the plaza every night. Very safe, also

El Acueducto De Queretaro

Reviewed By Chuck B - Steilacoom, Washington

The aqueduct is not a knock your eyes out sight. The important thing to understand is without the huge and tedious construction, there probably would never have been a sustainable city here. Of course it was all probably indigenous slave labor. Such is history. The best view is from the Mirador at the mausoleum a couple of blocks above.

Teatro de la Republica

Reviewed By realworldtraveller - Italy

This 150-year-old semi-colonial building stands on the corner of two side-streets just off one of Queretaro's main squares (jardin Zenea) and is one of the city's main Theaters. Its position - on the crossing of two streets instead of a main square or wide avenue - is the first of the differences with most other Theaters. The second difference is its outer architectural style, which makes it rather look like any other government or institutional building in Mexico. Its original name was Teatro de Iturbide; which was later changed into Teatro de la Republica. It can be visited, so you don't need to attend any specific function or representation to see its inside.

Enjoyable theatrical show presented by a young actors company. They enjoy doing that for the tourists and they can share this feeling to the audience. I really enjoy the two hours long of this walking show and I feel that all the people too. Nice...MoreMuchas Gracias por tu recomendación.

Santuario de la Virgen de Schoenstatt

Reviewed By Pedro M - Milton, Canada

Amazing place. It is mystical, it is peaceful it is inspiring and it is elevating. Surrounded by natural landscape, the sanctuary has a small chapel (copy of the original one in Germany) inside the chapel one can feel transported into a peaceful place. A most if you are religious and spiritual. A little bit hard to get to if you are not familiar with the city. Local taxis are an option. You can ask your driver to wait for you.

Museum of Arts of Queretaro

Exconvent of San Agustin, Baroque Cloister, most important in Aamerica. Inclusive Museum with accessiblility services. Guided tours, workshops, cultural events. One of the twentieth most important museums in Mexico, it ranks 15th place from 1123 museums in the country.

Reviewed By Grousedoctor - Plattsburgh, New York

If for no other reason visit the Museum of Arts just to see in interior courtyard. Truly magnificent! It will be one of the best interiors you see in all of Mexico. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was FREE. If you wanted to take photos, there was a $15MEX charge (extremely reasonable). It is not a large museum! There is an interesting collect, albeit small, of contemporary art. It was still interesting enough to capture the attention of my 10 year old grandson. As it is just a block off Madero Street in the historical center of Queretaro, it is well worth a short visit so as to see the building.
