At over 2,000 metres above sea level, the Colonial Highlands include a group of stunning colonial towns where you can step back in time to the heart of Spanish Mexico, or "New Spain". They are mostly located between 30 and 150 miles from Mexico City. This is the area where the Mexican revolution of 1911 began and which has spawned many of the country’s greatest authors and artists. Every town and city has something unique to offer, but they will all welcome you with sunny, narrow cobbled streets and courtyards, colour, balconies and fresh flowers. They all boast a fascinating mix of churches and architecture, music and friendly cafes, cool relaxing restaurants and brilliant local food.
Many of them are World Heritage Sites, with a diverse mix of cultures and history going back to the beginning of the Spanish conquest in 1521. The town centres are typically compact and ideal for walking, exploring and absorbing the region’s rich and tumultuous history.
