Experience Querétaro

Querétaro is the fastest-growing city in the country, with a strong economy partially based on IT and data centers, aircraft manufacturing and maintenance, logistics services, and machinery and automotive industries. Its wine production is Mexico’s second-largest. Some of Mexico’s most prestigious universities and research centers are located in Querétaro. In 1986, Querétaro was the host city for the FIFA World Cup.

The Sierra Gorda de Querétaro, part of the Sierra Madre Oriental, has been named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is rich in wildlife and geological diversity. In 2008, National Geographic Traveler listed Querétaro among the world’s top 15 historic destinations.

Strike out and see a gargantuan structure of 74 arches that the city is noted for—the 18th-century Romanesque Querétaro Aqueduct. The aqueduct (Acueducto de Querétaro) brought about the dozen or so fountains you’ll see around the historic district. Go up the hilltop and take in the view from the chapel known as Pantheon of Illustrious Querétanos.

See the orange tower of the Church of San Francisco (Templo de San Francisco) in the city center, facing the Jardin Zenea. The 16th-century Baroque-style Convent of San Francisco, made famous during Mexico’s fight for independence, is next door and host to the Queretaro Regional Museum. Its floral arches, patios, corridors, and stairways make this cloister one of Mexico’s most beautiful.

Also in the city center, the MUCAL Calendar Museum is a first of its kind, taking the visitor through experiences of time and space.

The former convent of San Agustin is host to the Baroque Querétaro’s Art Museum. You’ll see a progression of centuries-old works of art, both European and national.

It’s so worth a day trip—seeing La Peña de Bernal, the world’s third-largest monolithic rock. The rock is thought to have originated during the Jurassic period, more than 65 million years ago! Some residents believe the giant rock has mystical powers. For an eye-popping view, hike to the small chapel at its highest point.

Hill of the Bells (Cerro de las Campana) is a national park on the outskirts of Querétaro, where legend has it that, when struck, the rocks emit bell-like tones. Pretty cool, eh? Whether you hear the bells or not, the park also houses a chapel and a museum, both of which tell the story of major historical events that went down in this very place.

They say it has ancient secrets from the Toltec civilization (early as AD 700), the El Cerrito pyramid is approximately 100 feet high and was once a worship site.

Go to the high elevation of Zona Diamante (Anillo Vial II, Anillo Vial Fray Junípero Serra 1500-A, Col. Arboledas, 76140 Santiago de Querétaro) to find your Mirador (a lookout).
