Behind the Doors of San Miguel de Allende

Behind the Doors of San Miguel de Allende Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Established in the sixteenth century as a Franciscan mission, the lovely Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende has been an art and artisanal center for nearly two hundred years. Its cool summers and mild winters have more recently made it a popular destination for vacationers from North America and Europe.

As a part-time resident of San Miguel since 1991, Robert de Gast has spent a lot of time walking the uneven streets of the town's historic district. His book of photographs The Doors of San Miguel de Allende (Pomegranate, 1994) deftly captured the spirit of one of the New World's oldest European settlements. Here, in Behind the Doors of San Miguel de Allende, de Gast visits the old town's private paradises — sunstruck, shade-dappled court-yards, little sanctuaries of peace and beauty. Ninety-six superb photographs transport us to the parts of San Miguel that the visitor seldom sees. In these images, we glimpse the lives and traditions of a unique and magical place.
