Join us for a virtual walk to the City of San Miguel de Allende, a colonial-era city in Mexico’s central highlands, is known for its baroque Spanish architecture, thriving arts scene and cultural festivals. In the city’s historic, cobblestoned center lies the neo-Gothic church Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, whose dramatic pink towers rise above the main plaza, El Jardín.
We will start our tour at the main parish of San Miguel de Allende, and I will introduce Mexico, its geography and its history. Then, I will give a brief explanation about the origin of San Miguel de Allende and its unique parish church. Later, we will walk through its french style garden and visit the Immaculate Conception Convent and admire the different styles at the entrance. Appreciate one of the best examples of the French Neoclassic architectural style in the region.
Next, we will stop by the Franciscan Convent, which has different churches in the same cluster. And finally, we will end our tour at the city square, where we will be able to appreciate the chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Health and the Oratory of Saint Philip Neri.
