Queretaro City Tour, Mexico

Queretero is one of the country's most charming colonial towns, no doubt a real showcase of baroque architecture in Mexico.

The impressive Spanish aqueduct serving as the city's landmark dominates it and it was here that Maximilian of Habsburg was executed after the breakdown of his ephemeral Empire. The structure was built in 1738 to bring fresh water to the parched city. Recently restored to pristine condition, the elevated structure is of Roman dimensions, comprising some 74 arches, some as high as 30 metres. Although it no longer carries municipal water, the colonial aqueduct is one of the most ambitious hydraulic projects of the colonial era in Mexico and­ is an imposing sight as it sweeps into the city from the surrounding hills.

Your tour will included such famous sights as the Jardin de la Corregiadora named after the a heroine of the Mexican Indepedence movement, Josefina Ortiz de Dominguez as well as the Palacio de Gobierno where in the literary salon the seeds of Mexican Independence were planted.
