to Queretaro by lobosolo
Quote: Santiago de Querétaro, one of the principal historical México's cities: even before the official Spanish "foundation", a large group of Chichimecas, often referred as one of the last groups of Nahuatl, this Sangremal Hill was busy with people coming to take pleasure trips to the high mountains or thermal baths.

Review on March 22, 2005: The restaurant has being growing a lot since I last reported about it. They bought the adjacent property and grew that way. Decoration is still on the go, but the good traditional food is what has made them strong and stronger.

Well, this is a historic legend. It happened to Marquis of Villa del Villar del Águila, one of the well known Queretans of those times.
What he decided to do was improve her life a little by constructing an acqueduct of 79 arches that conducted the vital liquid, scarce in the convent as in all the city, from the source to where the convent resided. Water came directly into a pit and at the bottom was the kitchen.
The water dripping and falling on 4 ft. thick walls customary in Spanish missions, was cool enough to conserve food for a longer time and thus the Marquis not only brought water to her beloved nun, but also a "refrigerator" and last but never least, the peace of mind of not being an heretic and therefore not risking his life!
