State of Querétaro
Category: Historic city
Cultural criteria: (ii) (iv)
Inscription: 07/12/1996

This cultural property is a magnificent example of a New Spain’s settlement whose layout integrates the twisting alleys of the Indian quarters with the rigid Spanish geometry, symbolizing this way its multi-ethnic character. It is also endowed with a wealth of outstanding civil and religious buildings, notably from the 17th and 18th centuries, its time of splendor.
