Robert de Gast crosses the thresholds of homes in San Miguel de Allende to create this gorgeous book of interiors of homes this historic Mexican town. He has also discovered their remarkable outdoor paradises - sunstruck, lushly colored courtyards, patios, and breezeways - that lay beyond the entry.
Come with de Gast as he guides you to parts of San Miguel visitors seldom see and offers glimpses into the daily lives and traditions of those who live in this unique place. Established in the sixteenth century as a Franciscan mission, the lovely town of San Miguel de Allende has been an art and artisanal center for nearly two centuries. Its cool summers and mild winters have more recently made it a popular destination for vacationers from North America and Europe.
