Old world charm and devotion -a very special place that encourages contemplation. lots of places to have lunch and coffee nearby. Bring both dollars and pesos and a phrase book -It's more fun that way! Be generous to the cabbies and street musicians -They are appreciative.

All faiths, come and enjoy one of the most spectacular cathedrals you will ever visit, anywhere. Sundays are crowded; holidays are especially so.

Such a beautiful church that is gorgeously lit in the evening. Even if you're not Catholic, it's certainly worth a visit.

The church is beautiful and Don Miguel Hidalgo was a priest here. The architecture of the church seems very french and you can see the church from all over the town. There are many churches and convents in San Miguel but this one is breathtaking.
