It's the center of the town, every evening there seems to be a fiesta around this area. Great place to sit and take it all in.

Definitivamente al ir a San Miguel de Allende y pasear por sus lindas calles , la plaza, ir a la parroquia es un deber! sobre todo por la curiosa historia que rodea su construcción se dice, que un maestro albañil encargado de ella, la diseñó a partir de una postal traída de Europa, y es por eso que la fachada...

Technically only a parish church, this is more cathedral in a very European style than anything else. A stunning must see especially at night.

This you will see and use as a landmark as you make your way around the community. It is very beautiful, but the best thing is that it's surrounded by people who are selling their wares and giving you great big smiles.

The center of San Miguel de Allende and most recognizable fixture. Make sure you go inside to get the full experience of amazing history of San Miguel and its religious roots. Located right across from the Jardin which is the center of "Centro" A can't miss location and a can't miss attraction.

Amazing architecture inspired (as locals tell you) on the Cologne Cathedral. Right in the central park, is the perfect finish for a long walk through the park, specially on weekends where there´s a painting and craftman fair.

This is an exquisite church in the main plaza and San Miguel de Allende Mexico. We spent a whole day in an around the church during our recent stay in Mexico. The people in this town are very religious and masses are always going on. It is a very sacred and inspiring place.

One of the most magnificent Cathedrals I have seen, including some both in the U.S. and in England. Built in the 17th century it has stood as a landmark of San Miguel and Mexico. Plan on at least one hour to walk through. It is a MUST but of course you can't miss it.
