Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, San Miguel de Allende
(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A good place to spend the afternoon with the family is located in the Centre of San Miguel de Allende, in front of a square.

  • It's a beautiful church, and the heart of SMA. The plaza is all dressed up for Christmas, it's sunny and 70 degrees, and the bells are beautiful. 
  • Beautiful and uncommon style in Mexico, will be one of your must-see to be in the center of the city

  • Beautiful cathedral church in the center of San Miguel de Allende. The jardin principal in front is a nice place to sit and enjoy the culture. At night make sure and get a Mariachi with the Parroquia in the background.
  • Pequeña pero muy hermosa
  • Lovely town. Well preserved!
  • Very nice view!
  • Is impossible to visit SM and not visit here. I think it's slightly more beautiful on outside than inside but allows for great photos and is always lively, people congregate here, parades start here, fireworks start here. Always something happening.
