San Miguel de Allende is a city located on the eastern side of the state of Guanajuato, Mexico. A UNESCO designated World Heritage Site, this place is full of beauty and charm with its Baroque/Neoclassical architecture, cobblestone streets, and brightly colored buildings often adorned with decorations and flowering Bougainvillea.

In contrast to the neo-gothic and baroque architecture in the center of town, many of the homes and businesses of San Miguel de Allende are simple in their structure. The simplicity of these facades often function as a backdrop to showcase the beautiful doors and windows throughout the city. Adorned with the flowering vines of bougainvillea, potted plants, and baked goods, these windows are beautiful and inviting.

The doors of San Miguel de Allende are substantial and beautiful. Like the windows, many are accentuated with the addition of interesting hardware, knockers, and flowering vines.

Dogs will often show up in the windows and doors of San Miguel de Allende. Some to lounge and others to perform their duty as the security system of the household.
