This is another church in San Miguel de Allende with a wonderful exterior. Easy to find centrally located. Go inside.

Enjoy the German-inspired architecture of this church. It is located adjacent to the central plaza in SMA. On our visit, we saw different community cultural offerings at the church. Check out the history behind this historic church.

This distinctive church is in the PLAZA CIVICA near the Mercado Ignacio Ramirez in Centro.
Some people refer to this Plaza, near the Oratorio de San Felipe de Neri Church at the top (east) of Calle Insurgentes) as "the horse statue park." It has a bronze Equestrian statue of Colonel Allende in the middle of the plaza.
The church of Our Lady of Health - La Salud - has a stone shell design over the entrance - and cinema buffs will remember Antonio Banderas coming out of this church with guns a'blazing in the locally shot film ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO.
This the shell design comes from St.James of Spain (Santiago) who used a shell for baptism ceremonies.
Inside the small narrow church - the domed ceiling uses the four virtues stressed in Catholic Christianity - . the altar paintings illustrates the parable of the Good Shepherd from the New Testament. To your left is a side altar with a statue of "The Child of Health." This infant fills a local "need" in a community where infant mortality has been high. Around the glass case that cradles him are snapshots of recovered babies. To the right of the main altar is a "hidden" chapel referred to as the TRES MARIAS (Three Marias) - very private & simple.
This church has the only altar in this area dedicated to Saint Cecilia - the Patron Saint of Music & Musicians. Her feast & fiesta day is November 22nd. Many musicians will come here to play for her on that day.

This temple is just off a busy town square. It has a couple of chapel areas and is adorned with paintings and painted statues. The outside of the temple has an ornate facade with stone carvings including religious figures, an arched roof and a crucifix on top.
Front and centre inside is to figure of a woman wearing pink and holding up a baby in one hand.

A most unique facade built into the walls of a normal-looking street. Truly beautiful work and memorable interior. Intimate in detail. Location is across from a rather drab, ordinary local square, in a lesser-desirable area of town. Worth a visit.

The Church of Our Lady Of Health is not the one pictured but a smaller church with a unique front and is definitely worth a visit.It was built around 1735 but there is not a lot of other information available about it.

It is in the middle of town and everything is going on here.The parque is there with vendors and concerts all the time. We have gone into the church for Christmas services with the family and it was wonderful. It is as beautiful inside as outside.

Located on the heart of the beautiful Famous San Miguel de Allende, The Church of Our Lady of Health stands the city's symbol. It's wonderful pink stone facade is a fine example of Mexican skilled stone carvers and excellence. Undoubtedly a must.
