“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

As pretty as pink stone cathedral exteriors can get. You can spend hours sitting and thinking. Maybe even catch wedding procession (we did).

“The Parroquia and the Jardin are the heart of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Daily life in San Miguel centers on this pink wedding cake parish church monument. There are mexicans and gringos, young and old, balloon and toy vendors and lots of people basking in the sun.This is the square where everything happens: concerts, weddings, dancers, puppeteers, magic acts. Be sure to venture inside.the Parroquia.

“Beautiful for the Holidays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

The Parroquia at San Miguel is truly beautiful. We were amazed to see that the amazingly loud bells that rang each hour were done so by hand!!! Not ropes being pulled, but individuals up in the tower actually pushing the bells to keep them going! The town's center is focused around the Parroquia and it doesn't disappoint!

“The central site in San Miguel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

If you are in town at almost any time of the year - the Parroquia is a key site to see. Around dia de los muertos they open the crypts under the altar. There are actually two churches on the site - both are filled with some interesting works of art.

“Original, old church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

You see it from everywhere in th city. At night it is feeric to look at with the lights on. The style is original. San Miguel is visited greatly because of this unique church.
