“Stunning neo Gothic archiecture”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Originally built in the 1500's and then 'updated' to a neo-Gothic style in the 19th century by an indigenous mason, this cathedral is stunning and alone worth the trip to San Miguel!

“breathtaking”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

San Miguel would not be San Miguel without the Parroquia. Its color is amazing against the sunset.
Make sure you see it from a distance to get the full effect.

“Downtown charm”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

The landmark of San Miguel. An eclectic view of architecture in Mexico. The style is Gothic but the church has a local flare

“Best Church I've seen”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Amazing piece of architecture the color is unique and amazing and if you are lucky to see the show at sunset when the church gets lit up with lots of colors then you are in for a treat.
Watch your camera and belongings when walking around the nearby Jardin! It's relatively safe but be aware.

“Historic Gothic church - near market”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

A lively main square with the unique gothic church at the forefront. Calm, easy going area w/ an above average amount of American expats. Restaurants surround the square as do shops. HINT - you will be within a few blocks of many of the locals artisans and craft dealers. It pays to walk around through the open air markets and see local items. The area is known for its artisans, especially surrounding silver products. Remember to bargain w/ the street vendors! I went on a sunny Sunday after church and it was a lively area.
