Baroque and neoclassical architecture, expressed in sumptuous religious and civil buildings
The Historic Monuments Zone of the Historic Center was declared World Heritage by Unesco for its baroque and neoclassical architecture, expressed in sumptuous religious and civil buildings; an exceptional example of a Spanish viceregal city. Its squares and alleys are ideal for a morning coffee or drink at night.
In addition to the sumptuous architecture of the civil and religious buildings of the 17th and 18th centuries, the original urban trait stands out. The layout of its streets shows the syncretism that operated for 300 years.
The Historic Center holds, among its treasures, outstanding buildings, peaceful alleys, squares and gardens where you can witness Querétaro’s everyday life.
The city was once granted the honor of being designated a baroque city, since it is particularly marked by the great Baroque architectural works from the XVII and XVIII centuries.
Querétaro has a great variety of museums, some of them located in beautiful buildings of the viceregal period, that offer an interesting overview of the history and cultural expressions of the country.
