This is the last post of photos from my trip to Mexico, but I’ll have some other travel posts about Mexico coming up soon! If you haven’t read my other posts on my trip to Mexico (you can view all my posts on it here), I went to San Luis Potosí, Mexico for the junior world racquetball tournament for my younger sister in November. San Luis Potosí, Mexico isn’t a touristy destination at all, so it was a great place to have an authentic experience of Mexico! And authentic Mexican food is definitely something worth experiencing.
My favorite part of our sightseeing adventures was going to Old City San Luis Potosí and seeing all the gorgeous old buildings. I have a little history of it on my first post about Old City San Luis Potosí and where the name came from if you’re curious. I loved how all the buildings were so rich with history and so beautifully ornate and colorful! I love bright colors (hence my favorite shoes), and Old City San Luis Potosí did not disappoint. I don’t think I’ve ever seen historical cathedrals in bright orange or yellow before, and it was pretty incredible. If you haven’t traveled there yet, I highly suggest going!
This was probably my favorite building! This is the Señora del Carmen in the Plaza del Carmen
I love the colorful city blocks!
All the carved doors were so beautiful
We found a little indoor market and got some pottery from one of the stands
This building was huge and looked like a medieval castle
This is my favorite house! I love the bright colors and tiles and that ornate door
The Basilica Guadalupe
There were some little bakeries and we got some delicious cookies!
This is actually a water tower, and it’s on all the license plates in San Luis Potosí. I found a really neat old photo of it from the 1880s here
If you go to San Luis Potosí, you MUST go to La Casa del Artesano for souvenirs! Everything is locally made and they have amazing prices. I loaded up on tons of Christmas presents!
All the colorful domes were amazing
We went to a mansion that had been converted into a museum called Museo Francisco Cassio, and it was beautiful!
I’m not sure what this is called, but it was pretty fun to play around with!
So I have finally made it through all my photos from San Luis Potosí, Mexico! I hope I have convinced some of you to visit there! 🙂
