Situated half-way between Mexico City and Guadalajara enveloped by the plains, peaks and plateaus of the Sierra Madre, the state of Guanajuato is geographically blessed. Exploratory and settlement operations during Colonial expansion influenced the area's growth and economic expansion. Guanajuato is home to some of the most important silver and gold mines found in Mexico and wonderful Colonial architectural jewels. The area served as the cradle of Mexico's Independence from Spain's Colonial Rule. Today's Guanajuato is blessed with preservation of its Colonial heritage and a growing industrial base responding responsively to the needs of its people and traditions. Leon's shoe crafters are world-famous for leather quality and craftsmanship. Haciendas, art shops, colonial treasures turned into boutique hotels dot the country-side and invite travelers from all over the world.
