Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, San Miguel de Allende

4.8
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.

  • It is a temple of beautiful architecture, I visited her at night, it was lit and it looked beautiful, with a neo-Gothic style, with tall towers pink, its interior is also beautiful. It is worth visiting it.

  • What a beautiful place to visit. Parking can be hard to find, so make that part of your planning if you're driving. While I was visiting, there was an absolutely beautiful wedding going on in English which was a bit of a surprise. It's an amazingly beautiful church, full of history. Nearby, there's plenty of restaurants and shops to explore. A must see if you're in the area.
  • After have traveled for over a year and having seen many historic churches in Europe including the Vatican, i can honestly say this is a gorgeous church. I haven't practiced the religion in years so my review is from the agnostic point of view. The architecture is amazing and not over decorated at all. Spend about 15 minutes looking the outside before working your way in. Entrance is free
  • This fabulous church dominates the center of San Miguel and can be seen from many places around the town. It is lovely inside and out, with its fantastic spires and other wonderful architectural features. I loved just sitting in the park across the plaza and looking at the church as the changing light of the day highlighted new aspects. It's amazing!
  • San Miguel De Allende is a beautiful friendly town with much to see and do. The Churches are all magnificent to behold, and walking the narrow cobbled streets borders on magical. If you want to see more of mexico than resorts and beaches SMA would be a great choice.
  • First time traveling to Mexico and visiting San Miguel. This beautiful icon parish is a must see. The peace you feel automatically you enter is magical.
