Trip Planner: Mexico / Central Mexico and Gulf Coast / Guanajuato / San Miguel de Allende / Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel
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.

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!
