Plaza de la Corregidora
The Plaza de la Corregidora has a monument to the woman (the magistrate’s wife) who risked her neck to warn the resistance army about Spanish military plans. Her husband had her locked in her room at the time, but she managed to pass a note through a keyhole. Her statue was erected for the centennial celebration of Mexico’s independence from Spain.
Restaurants with outside seating ring the plaza. They all have live music, and each musician is playing something different.
Santa Rosa de Viterbo
Very impressive architecture. If you only go to a few churches here, this should be one. There is a beautiful plaza in front of the church.
From an article by Toni Dabbs called "Queretaro, Mexico
A colonial gem in a modern setting:"
Templo de Santa Rosa de Viterbo, a tall and stately church completed in 1752, is considered the crowning achievement of Ignacio Mariano de las Casas, an architect who left his mark throughout Queretaro. The unusual design incorporates inverted flying buttresses, each decorated with an impish mask sticking out its tongue.
Its interior is a Churrigueresque showcase, including: superbly carved retablos and confessional; pulpit inlaid with silver, ebony and ivory; life-size figures of the apostles at the Last Supper; Baroque organ, built in 1759 and still in use; and mural by Tresguerras depicting St. Rose of Viterbo surrounded by her nuns.
