  • Casa de Ecala

    by turos Written Jan 9, 2005

    Propiedad de don Tomás López de Ecala, español a quien le fascinaba la arquitectura y constantemente le cambiaba la fachada a su casa, pero siempre se salía una vara de la banqueta, hasta que su vecino, don Domingo Hernández Iglesias le reta a un juicio y a que quien perdiera tendría que cerrar su balcón principal, lo que era la peor ofensa en esos tiempos.

  • Templo de San Agustin

    by turos Written Jan 9, 2005
    Templo de San Agustin

    "¿Quién no siente la pureza de sus líneas arquitectónicas que le dan la seguridad de un puente sólido tendido entre lo finito y lo infinito?.¿Quién no capta que la armonía de los contrastes nos hace experimentar la anchura y la longitud, la profundidad y la alteza del misterio del amor y la belleza de que habla San Agustín en su obra inmortal, "La ciudad de Dios"?. ¿A quién no arroba en éxtasis de plegarias ese vaivén de combinación en los dibujos de filigrana que se hace sutil voluta perfumada de incienso?". Incuestionablemente que lo que escribió el P. Navarrete del Convento de San Agustín de Querétaro, es eso y más, porque si pudo embelesarlo con lo que queda de su pretérita grandeza en el exterior del templo y el imponderable claustro, hoy Museo de Arte de Querétaro, ¿cómo sería en sus interiores donde los retablos eran, según las crónicas, lo más acabado y exquisito del barroco del siglo XVIII?.

    Outdoor Comedy Shows

    by Ames24 Written Jul 3, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every Sunday evening in one or two of the main plazas in El Centro are comedy shows. They are impressive and so energetic. They were one of my Sunday highlights. Families and people of all ages gather round for a time to laugh and enjoy the fun these guys generate. Everyone needs a good dose of laughter at least once a week!

    There is no cost except you can toss your pesos into the hat they pass around at the end of the show.

    Los Miradores

    by pauly_queretaro Updated Mar 19, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Los Miradores, or lookout points. are a must see in Queretaro. There are acutally several places around Queretaro where you can get a great view of the whole city. My favorite spot was atop a small mountain near the colonia Lomas (Hills). It is not a huge tourist spot, but a good place to hang out and have a beer and look at the amazing view. The Arcos/ Aguaduct looks awesome from this view and I visited this spot several times with different friends and my brother when they came down to visit me. Drinking is not allowed here since it is considered a public place, and I don't condone it, but as a young guy I would frequently have some "caguamas" here and enjoy the breathtaking view.

    Tranvia Turistico

    If visiting Queretaro's downtown without a proper guide it is advisable to take the "Tranvia" tour which is pretty cheap and will guide you through the main seightseeing places within the downtown.

    The downtown has been considered as Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and this tour is the best way to be immersed inside the magic of the city, visiting the main buildings, monuments, squares and gardens.

    The Arches at night are a sight to see! There is a little mountain that over looks the city and it is really great at night and can be very romantic.
