Photo of the week – sunset in San Miguel de Allende
The photo was taken at 6.38 pm on 25th March 2011 from the viewpoint El Mirador when we stopped there during the town train tour (tranvía El Mayorazgo) for a couple of minutes to enjoy the view of San Miguel de Allende and take some photos. The train tour goes from Calle Juarez at Jardín Principal every 2 hours from 10am to 8pm but as you can see, the best time to take it is at 6pm or 8pm in summer when it gets darker later.
The tranvía costs 6o pesos, or 40 pesos for children and older people. It is the easiest and funniest way to visit 18 places of interest in San Miguel Allende and the guide explains you legends of the place with some singing and very interesting way of telling the story of the town. I had a great laugh and learned a lot.
