Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel South Side of Plaza Mon. - Sun. 8.00 to 14.00 & 17.00 to 21.00 Free Admission San Miguel's famous landmark, the parish church or La Parroquia as referred to locally, stands tall and proud just of the Central Plaza. It delicately frames the centre of San Miguel Mexico with crafted pink stone highlighted by the sun during daytime hours and at night the pink tones appear to be radiating due to clever lighting.
The untrained architect, Zeferino Gutiérrez, is said to have created it from images of European postcards, first sketching designs in sand before applying them to paper. A Neo-Gothic tower spires from a neoclassical church in a design that would anger architectural purist if not for the way the church holds itself majestically amongst surrounding colonial buildings.
