I have visited this church on several visits to San Miguel, both as a tourist and as a worshiper on Sundays. Its unique architecture is enough to draw visitors for a quick visit both inside and out, but the inside of the church is also spectacular. I don't think you can visit SMA without going to the Parroquia several times,... More

You can't miss when in San Miguel de Allende - it's in the central plaza! Though there's lot of activity going on outside be sure to check out the interior. We were able to sit in the back during a service. Read about the history and the controversy of the "gothic architecture". Check it out during the day and at... More

Magical Place, surrounded by colonial architecture, art, relaxed environment and outstanding atmosphere. Best view of Parroquia in front park. At night dressed with illumination and continuous events. A place to come back.

Beautiful and historic church. A must see. This church is the heart of the city and truly represents the city. Beautiful with the bells chiming and providing an amazing backdrop for the town square with many activities going on.

The Parroquia is a church right in the middle of the town square, the pinkish coral color is amazing. Find a restaurant where you can can have a glass of wine or a beer and just do some people watching.

This gorgeous Parroquia is at the heart of San Miguel Allende alongside the main garden/plaza where the community gathers, walks, eats, sings daily. It is actually pink and towering and lights up the whole city. A must-see!

Very nice church. The plaza in front of the church is very nice too. The brick cieling in the church is beautiful. I saw people at the top but didnt ask where we could go up.

I happened to have a view of the Parroquia from my bedroom for 4 months! What a blessing! It is a powerful place. Just go there and speak to Archangel Michael! It overlights the city and has a powerful energy. Just go walk through it over and over and sit in the Jardin to look at it! You will not... More

Simply Amazing! Perfecto for the Centro tourists to pass by and take pictures everywhere in that area. I enjoyed sitting in the Jardin with the best weather in the month of July. Best time to go there in the AM and before 4 PM, because they will get to rain in early evening. That's just Mexico.
