Dolores Hidalgo

Dolores Hidalgo is a small city in the north-central part of the Mexican state of Guanajuato. Today Dolores Hidalgo is known primarily for its ceramics industry, which provides income to well over half the town’s population. The inexpensive and mass-produced output of the town is marketed throughout Latin America.


The central square of the town, in front of Fr Hidalgo’s historic church, is popular on weekends for the unusual flavors of locally-made ice cream, such as shrimp and tequila, sold by vendors from small barrows.
