San Miguel Arcangel, La Parroquia (the parish), a wedding ended and the red carpet rolled up; a quick photo before the hoardes of people began to enter again.
San Miguel Arcangel above the main altar.
The exterior of the church is a pseudo-Gothic facade with turrets and spires rebuilt in 1880 by a self-taught Indian stone mason who is said to have learned about architecture by studying postcards of French cathedrals, and drawing diagrams in the dust to show his plan to his workers. Inside, the structure is the original architecture with a Moorish influence.
Next week we’ll go into the Capilla Del Santisimo, the little side chapel within the church, to see the wonderful murals in there as well as a couple outside in the main church.
