The newest/oldest sight to behold in San Miguel: The archeological zone of Canada de la Virgen, located 30 km south of town and getting ready to open to the public on Feb 15th, following 10 years of excavation and restoration by Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). Sacred to the Otomi Indians in its glory days from 600-900 A.D., this site was only discovered in the 1980s!  Tours will be available for an historical daytrip from San Miguel.
