The spires, which were designed in the 19th century, are the only architectural feature of the church that’s not from the 17th century.

Absolutely magnificent Catholic Church. You can see and go into the Ancient Confession Booths, near at the marble altars, light candles for prayers for the sick or deceased. Awesome place where high ranking cardinals and bishops are buried!
This church is central to the city of San Miguel and is a must see. There are ex-pats who conduct tours for 300 pesos and it is well worth the money. Once inside, don’t rush! Enjoy the beauty, the architecture, the sweat and toil that went into building this amazing church. A definite must see!
