This 17th-century church was built only after a protracted struggle to gain the land where a church built by Indians had previously stood.

One of many beautiful churches in SMA, unfortunately we didn’t find it until our last day. One day a group of people were praying the rosary inside so we don’t want to go in. It has a nice small town feeling to the church. I can only imagine what it would be like to attend mass there.

For me, this Church dominates the area near the Plaza Civica and the east end of Calle Insurgentes..It is described as a domed baroque structure built in the 18th century..as one enters the oil paintings, the brilliant dome view invites much further exploration and a longer reflection of the beauty that is present..the squares just outside the church offer a variety of food opportunities... there are many times when street musicians, jugglers and other entertainment is present..there are many places to sit and take in this wonderful atmosphere...

Dating back to the early18th century (1712), the church is fully functional with a daily mass. A nice looking church with some sculpture and paintings. Worth a visit

This small but ornate church in central San Miguel de Allende is definitely worth a quick stop to appreciate the architecture and soak up the history.

This church is located right in the heart of the old city. You can’t miss it. It dates back to the 18th century. I loved the exterior facade

Another beautiful Church in SMA. The blue sky and the ocre colors are just stunning. The inside is old but quite memorable.

The beautiful church dates back to the 18th century and was the first we came across in the picturesque town of San Miguel de Allende.Like most churches and sights in the town it was well signed with details and history in English.

This church is a nice oasis of calm in the beautiful chaos of SMA. We wandered into it while walking through SMA and were impressed with the architecture and beauty.

This was a quiet respite on a hot day. Step inside the chapel, built in early 18th Century, and enjoy a peaceful interlude from the noisy, busy world outside. The east side sports its original pink stone facade while the south side is newer, barogue style. There are supposed to 33 oils by Cabrera but I did not find that many.

This multi towered and doomed church dates back from the 18th century. The pale pink main facadr is baroque with an indegenious influence. Inside the church are 33 oil paintings showing scenes from the life of San Felipe Neri, the 16th century Florentine who founded the Oratorio Catholic order.
