SMA Pano
We have had our home in San Miguel de Allende for about 15 years, but have only recently begun to explore its history and culture. Shown below are three virtual tours that highlight the history and culture of the city. The tours may be viewed within this page, or you may click on the link to visit the site where they are hosted. Finally, links to the standalone apps are provided so that you can take them with you using a tablet or, for a truly immersive experience, put them in a Google Cardboard or similar VR headset for a real look around.
