The state of Guanajuato has beautiful magical towns where it is possible to visit its legends, traditions and gastronomy, as well as admire its beautiful colonial buildings.
Of the Magical Towns of Guanajuato, this is the one that most recently entered the list and is known for its gastronomic offer, as well as for its colonial parishes.
One of its main attractions is the manufacture of molcajetes.
This “Pueblo Magico” is nothing less than the home of Mexican Independence, it was the place where the priest Don Miguel Hidalgo called out the independence movement “Grito de Dolores” on September 16th, 1810, so its value and relevance is a source of pride for the nation and the state of Guanajuato.
Because it is a magical town, Dolores has a particular charm, its artisans work the pottery the old fashioned way, with a smile on their mouths they elaborate precious ceramic pieces, molded around and painted by hand and that is one of the main economic activities of the city. Its pottery culture is so famous that the pottery from Dolores is exported to many countries in America and around the world.
