La Alameda Hidalgo, ha sido por más de dos siglos resguardo de árboles, fuente de vida del Centro Histórico de nuestra ciudad.

Fue creada por el Corregidor lgnacio Ruiz Calado para dotar a la ciudad de un lugar de esparcimiento, y proyectada por Mariano Oriñuela. Se inauguró el año de 1804, y recibió el nombre de Alameda Miguel Hidalgo en 1897. En el siglo XX, se cercó con una reja metálica y columnas de cantera; después se hicieron dos pórticos en base a los dibujos del proyecto original.

Hoy la Alameda abre sus puertas a los ocho vientos dotada de una fuente central, la escultura de Hidalgo restaurada y un buen número de bancas para continuar con su función: fuente de vida y lugar de esparcimiento para convivir y disfrutar todos los que habitamos en Santiago de Querétaro.

Two porticos were made based on the drawings of the original project. Today the Alameda opens its doors to the eight winds with a central fountain, the sculpture of Hidalgo recently restored and a good number of benches to continue with its main function: to be a source of life and place of recreation, life and enjoyment for all those who live in Santiago de Querétaro.
