For the health and safety of our patrons and speakers, masks may be required for indoor in-person Houston Seminar events, and we strongly prefer registrants to be fully vaccinated. Since events are held at a variety of venues with their own policies and protocols, there may be other requirements for some courses. We make every effort to inform guests in a timely manner if there are additional health and safety guidelines they will be asked to follow. Our trips and study tours, particularly those that include shared transportation or plane flights, may also require guidelines beyond those for in-person courses, which will be determined in conjunction with venues, vendors, and local guidelines. We will make every effort to announce these guidelines as far in advance as possible. Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to navigate the world of COVID-19 while bringing enriching experiences to our audiences.
Cities of Silver: Santiago de Querétaro, San Miguel de Allende, and Guanajuato
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4-SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2023
The Houston Seminar will explore the colonial—and contemporary—heritage of three central Mexican cities founded in the sixteenth century and renowned for their architectural, artistic, and cultural heritage. Santiago de Querétaro (1531), Guanajuato (1548), and San Miguel de Allende (1555) lie near sources of mineral deposits whose discovery in the eighteenth century would make Mexico the world’s leading producer of silver. Today, all three cities are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We will spend two nights in San Miguel de Allende and two nights in Santiago de Querétaro, traveling via coach in and around these two cities and Guanajuato.
Trip pricing does not include airfare. Registration information to be released soon. To place your name on an interest list for this study tour, please call 713-666-9000 or email [email protected]
