I have been to the Segrada Familia in Barcelona, and it's amazing to think that the architect of this church designed it from a postcard of Gaudi's famous church!

Beautiul church; weddings in the evening are accompanied by brides and grooms on stilts outside that celebrate the event by dancing outside of the church and accompanying the bride and groom as they arrive and leave from the church

Nice church but not as nice as those in Cuernavaca. A short visit is all that is necessary, 10-15 minutes & you will have seen all.

Not only an interesting and beautiful landmark that towers above the city, it is the anchor for the Jardin and the plaza in front of it. It is the core of activities in San Miguel especially during the Christmas to New Year celebrations that we were fortunate enough to enjoy.
