Welcome to Dolores Hidalgo—Cuna de la Independencia!
Named after, Nuestra Senora de los Dolores and Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, Dolores Hidalgo received the Pueblo Magico designation in 2002. It is known for Talavera(Ceramics), artisan ice cream, birth place of Jose Alfredo Jimenez and for el “Grito de Dolores” on the morning of September 16th 1810.
It’s a close day trip from San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato and even Queretaro and as they say a picture is worth a thousand words so please enjoy the pictures we took on our day trip to Dolores Hidalgo.
Dolores Hidalgo Guanajuato is the birthplace of Mexican Independence
Nearly half of Dolores Hidalgo’s population is directly or indirectly involved in the Talavera industry
Streets are lined with Talavera shops as far as the eye can see.

Definitely recommend a Tranvia Trolley Car Tour. Purchase tickets in front of church.
Jose Alfredo Jimenez’ tomb. More songs are attributed to this Mexican ranchera singer and composer than anyone else.
It is said, “If you visited Dolores Hidalgo but did not try the ice cream then it’s like you were never really here.”, so be sure to try the world famous ice cream.
