4. Insider’s Tip

Walking the streets of San Miguel is inspiring, but seeing what's behind closed doors is even better. Unless you personally know residents, you'll be hard-pressed to get beyond the facades of San Miguel’s fascinating, centuries-old dwellings. The local library, Biblioteca Pública, offers house and garden tours to private residences like artists' adobe homes and colonial mansions every Sunday. Check out the local weekly, Atención, on Fridays for a rundown of the homes on view that weekend. First-come, first-serve spaces fill fast (there’s no advanced bookings).
