Looking more like something out of a fairy tale than from real life, Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel is the main landmark of San Miguel de Allende. The building, constructed in 1683, is colored matt pink, with numerous spires reaching for the sky. The spires, which were designed in the 19th century, are the only architectural feature of the church that’s not from the 17th century. According to legend, the design come about from a Belgian church that the architect saw on a post card. He showed his builders how to construct the church by drawing plans in the sand.

  • Beyond words.... Knelt and prayed for someone who needs it. If God can't hear me in this place, he can't hear me at all.

  • A Definite Highlight. Stunning Cathedral. The heart of the City in more ways than one. Somewhere to pay homage to the few.

  • Has been on my list of places to visit for a long time. I am glad to have finally have accomplished this goal. It is definitely beautiful ❤️ and recommend any visitor to experience it.
  • The exterior is breathtaking. It’s so beautiful. We had the opportunity to attend mass and it was a nice service. I was not impressed by the inside of the church since the outside was so magnificent.
