In San Miguel Allende, this festival dedicated to Day of the Dead offers tastings, workshops, gastronomy and mixology
According to the Government of Mexico, “the Day of the Dead in the indigenous vision implies the temporary return of the souls of the deceased, who return home, to the world of the living, to live with family members and to be nourished by the essence of the food that is offered to them on the altars set up in their honor.”
In our country, death does not represent absence. Rather, it is a symbol of the life that materializes on the altar, that is, in the offerings. It is not for nothing that it is said that in Mexico death is a living culture.
If you still do not have a plan to join this celebration, we suggest you pack your suitcase and enjoy the Coloring Death Festival in San Miguel de Allende
