Querétaro, founded in 1531, is a vibrant and welcoming city with an extensive mixture of colonial and modern architecture. Located three hours NW of Mexico City, Querétaro is a UNESCO World Heritage site whose historic downtown (or centro) is notable for its colorful landscaped plazas, pedestrian walkways and beautifully restored colonial buildings. Close to the centro is Mexico’s tallest and longest aqueduct built in the early 1700s to bring drinking water into the city. Six major universities, modern international manufacturing plants, numerous museums and art galleries and many shopping centers also add to the special feel of life in Querétaro. Mexicans and foreigners alike often call the city of just over one million inhabitants “muy mexicana” – and students quickly come to appreciate this cultural authenticity as they explore the city and the countryside beyond.
