As a splendid jewel in the mountains of central Mexico, San Miguel Allende has remained suspended in time with its houses in ocher tones, churches built centuries ago and cobbled streets.
In the middle of this rich cultural environment, La Casa del Diezmo is a window to the past.
This historic building, originally dedicated to the collection of the tithe that the townspeople paid to the Catholic Church, was a place of wealth and power.
Traditional Yucatecan cuisine derives basically from Hispanic culture and Mayan culture. The taste that characterizes it depends on the combination of recipes and ingredients that give it its origin. Its typical flavor is recognized by the predominance of condiments used in its seasoning. Corn, as in all of Mesoamerica, is also an essential component of Yucatecan food, and is consumed extensively. Habanero chili and corn-made products accompany most Yucatecan dishes. The dishes are mostly based on pork, deer, turkey and a large number of seafood products derived from the great peninsular coastline.
