Belmond Casa de Sierra NevadaHospicio 42, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
San Miguel de Allende rests at an elevation of 6,400 feet in Mexico’s central Sierra Madre highlands, its Gothic spires and baroque bell towers seeming to reach for the very heights of heaven.
Steeped in more than 450 years of intrigue, art and romance, the crown jewel of colonial Mexico inspires a sense of wonder in every arrival—especially for wedding couples and their guests visiting Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada.
The hotel’s six historic mansions hold just 37 rooms and suites, many with fireplaces and all distinguished by exquisite fabrics, art and antiques. Brides and grooms select from two venues for their vows and festivities, including Casa Limón for intimate affairs and the portico-lined garden at Casa Parque for parties of up to 300 guests.
Visitors can also enjoy fine dining at Andanza Restaurant, relax by the pool and at enchanting Laja Spa, as well as sightsee by foot, horseback, bike and hot-air balloon. Another favorite pastime: shopping for fine silver work, handcrafted leather products and local folk art along San Miguel de Allende’s cobblestone streets. In addition, the hotel’s esteemed cooking school, Sazón, features programs ranging from two-hour classes to weeklong culinary events.
