Parador Territorial o Pan Dulce
Considerado Monumento Histórico, que conmemora el encuentro entre españoles e indígenas en la región. Este emblemático lugar sirvió como punto de encuentro y recepción, donde las tribus visitantes buscaban al gobernante local. Es así que los motivos arquitectónicos son un tanto indígenas como españoles en su hechura, buscan la unión de estas dos diferentes razas continentales que celebran el encuentro de Conín con los conquistadores. Su forma tiene semejanza con el pan o golosina que el indio Conín convidaba a sus invitados, e incluso se elaboró pan con esta figura en conmemoración. Igualmente en el Pan Dulce se labró el escudo de la ciudad de Santiago de Querétaro.

Regarding Pan Dulce Monument. In 1521, the Spanish arrived in Mexico. Cristobal de Olid entered the Querétaro region the following year. Although the arrival of Spaniards was generally met with resistance by the indigenous cultures, the Otomí people aligned themselves with the Spaniards and fought with them to defeat the Aztecs living in the Querétaro region. As a demonstration of loyalty, the Otomi leader Conín converted to Christianity between the years 1522 and 1526 and changed his name to Fernando de Tapia. In 1531 the city of Santiago de Querétaro was planned by Juan Sánchez de Alaniz and Conín.
