Reviewed October 2, 2013

You have to experience the center of town. There is an incredible fiesta at the end of September. The churches are beautful, as are the locals.

“A nice church surrounded by interesting buildings”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We made it to this church on a late afternoon Friday. The area was crowded with dancers who were here apparently to add flare to the municipal president's speech about his performance this past year.
We did not know but this is the month of the patron saint San Miguel. By chance we saw the saing being taken from church followed by a group of devotees They goo around the area and there is also a small band that announces their procession.
The church is nice although it looked a bit dark at the time. The architecture is interesting and you can really get the impression of solid rock walls. It is a nice place to visit and we saw tourists taking pictures of the altar as well. It is not the most ornate or most heavily decorated church I have seen, but it is definitely worth a visit and it is fun if you get to see and hear the bells.
Many shops and restaurants in this area.

“a pink wonder”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

the iconic architecture of this wonderful church, across from the main plaza is not to be missed. Take the English tour ($15 donation) on MWF mornings from the Jardin, and learn about many of the icons in the church and about it's history as well.

“All roads lead to La Parroquia”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

If you are staying in San Miguel it is hard to miss. It is located in the historic center and is one sight that is as beautiful at night as it is during the day. A must see if you visit San MIguel.
