Photos from Querétaro, Part 1

In September 2014, I spent five days in and around the city of Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico.  Here are some photos from my trip.

The city features beautiful colonial architecture, cobblestone streets, and blooming flowers hanging all over the place.

The city’s famous aqueduct was built between 1726 and 1738.  It features 75 arches, each 20 meters wide, for a total length of 1,280 meters.
