  • Finally, we return to the Oratorio of San Filipe Neri, not so much to the Church as such which offers nothing special but because, through a back door, we reach the Santa Casa of Loreto, a whole Golden baroque adjacent chapel with 3 great altarpieces and a beautiful ceiling.

  • Church in Baroque style, with a lot of traffic all hours of the day. Next the craft fair of the city, has a more regional sentiment (different from the Church of San Miguel, more international), always full and frequented by people of all social classes. In the morning where there were mass, the local community then resold them vegetables and local products, as if they came from the field. Very good to feel the religiosity of its inhabitants and the local culture.

  • Beautiful church! Right in downtown. If you're into culture, I recommend you check it out and do the walk-through.
  • Without a doubt, San Miguel de Allende is a city that is not only beautiful, but architecturally privileged since it is surrounded by precious gems like this construction with touches of Baroque art full of details that tell stories and traditions. It is very old but preserved in spectacular fashion.

  • One of the most beautiful and emblematic of San Miguel de Allende buildings is the Oratory of San Felipe Neri, which belonged in the 17TH century the mulatto population and was later transformed by the inhabitants of the city, which traced a Baroque facade of pink stone in which there are numerous indigenous motifs and images of our Lady of solitude which devoted the cover, and of five Apostles that accompany it. It has a Latin cross plan and its interior is decorated with paintings by Miguel Cabrera, neoclassical altars and a set of 33 paintings dedicated to the life of San Felipe Neri, which are distributed throughout the ship. On the left side the transept opens a chapel with Baroque doorway flanked by spiral columns reminiscent of the Holy House of the Virgin of Loreto; its interior is decorated with tiles from Valencia, local and Chinese tradition. Behind this Chapel is the Camarín de la Virgen, a superb Baroque octagonal building, where performing mastery and wealth come together resulting in a beautiful space, with gilded altarpieces and polychrome plasterwork that cover the walls.
