San Luis Potosí has become one of Mexico's busiest destinations for both national and international tourism. Thanks to a population boom throughout the state, Mexican architects have dedicated themselves to designing residential, cultural, and recreational buildings that highlight the region's architectural style and traditions. In this article, we present a few of these projects to illustrate a portion of Mexico's vibrant and varied architecture.
The state of San Luis Potosí is situated in the north-central region of Mexico, nestled between the states of Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Hidalgo, Querétaro, Guanajuato, and Zacatecas. With over 65,268 km² of land, it was the cultural border between Mesoamerica and Aridoamerica and was home to a vast array of cultures and customs. The state's capital city is San Luis Potosí and the state is a part of the Bajío-Occidente Alliance. It contains 5 federally protected areas administrated by the National Commission for Protected Natural Areas (CONANP).
