Dolores hidalgo coaPuebloM“Being a bit of a history buff, it was wonderful to visit Dolores Hidalgo; to stand on the church steps and look out at the square. And it is a charming square with statues, tall shade trees and lots of benches to watch the street action.

The town has become a bit of a meca for Mexicans now, who are very proud of their roots, history and heroes.”
