In addition to welcoming one of the seasons that brings colors, a change of climate, as well as Mexican gastronomic delights, the month of September is known by Mexicans as the “patriotic month” since it celebrates one of the most important achievements for Mexico. : Their independence.
Later we will address this celebration a little more, for now we will take a tour of some states that shelter the places that witnessed the fact that every September 16 we celebrate the independence of Mexico.
We will start with the state of Querétaro, Mexico: in this state is the Corregidora house, located in the Plaza de Armas, which is currently the State Government Palace. In this house, owned by the corregidores of this state, Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez and Miguel Domínguez, they met to create a committee in favor of New Spain reaching its independence. These boards were called “the Conspiracy of Querétaro”; which was discovered on September 12 and punished with jail.
Next we have the city of Dolores in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico:
Known as the “cradle of the Independence of Mexico”, because at dawn on September 16, 1810, the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, one of the most important characters of this stage, summoned the inhabitants of the city to take up arms against the viceroyalty. This is known as the “Grito de Dolores”.
The Parroquia de Dolores and the Casa de Hidalgo Museum are some places that can be visited to discover more about its history.
We also have the state of Guanajuato, Mexico:
The Alhóndiga de Granaditas in the state of Guanajuato, served as protection to the Spanish army, which sought to protect themselves from the insurgent troops of Miguel Hidalgo. To help the insurgents win the battle, Juan José de los Reyes Martínez “El Pípila”, burned the entrance door to the compound and this served for them to enter and subdue the Spanish army.
These are some of the places that have participated in one of the most celebrated stories by Mexicans and the entire country.
