Santiago de Querétaro, Querétaro, is home to Iturbide’s Theatre, where current Mexican Constitution of 1917 was proclaimed; it was also the third most important capital city during the Spanish Viceroyalty in Mexico (1535-1821), as well as being the state where the Mexican War of Independence, to end the rule of the Spanish crown, was plotted.
Querétaro is one of the first destinations in Mexico and the Historical Landmarks Trail of capital city of Santiago de Querétaro, along with the five Franciscan Missions in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, built between 1751 and 1766, achieved UNESCO’s World Heritage status in 1996 and 2003, respectively.
