On September 16 each year, Mexicans from all parts of the Republic flock to the small city of Dolores Hidalgo, Guanajuato to commemorate the “Grito,” the call for independence from Spain.

The grito’s originator, the popular but unconventional priest Miguel Hidalgo, issued the call in 1810 from the steps of the town’s stately church. The annual celebration involves the entire community but we are offered a special tour by one of Father Hidalgo’s descendants.
