Great church

It's a beautiful cathedral. Worth spending a few minutes to see and sit to give thanks. There is also a museum across the street worth seeing.

This is probably the most famous and stunning place in San Miguel de Allende. It represents the heart of San Miguel it is definitely a place to see. Incredible architectural building and it is even better if you go to one of the close roof top bars or restaurants near by to see the Parroquia during sunset.

I am not a religious person but I can tell you that this church has some magical power. You'll be thrilled by its architecture and how well-detailed its facade is.

This church reminds me La Sagrada Familia. It's very beautiful from the outside. I was unimpressed by the interior, until I returned to the church during a walking tour. Stan and George were great at illuminating us. Highly recommended!

Incredible! beautiful architecture! A must see, inside and out! The acoustics are amazing and if you happen to be there when there is a wedding, watching the parade afterwards with the giant puppets is quite an experience

This cathedral looks like Gaudi's work in Barcelona. Incredible cathedral centered in the middle of the square...great place to eat, people watch and listen to Mariachi bands.

Come here and sit and watch the goings on. Locals, musicians , venders , tourists. A good way to start off your trip to be around people especially if you are traveling alone. You will meet people in this area.
