The Sunday Traveler ~ San Miguel Arcangel’s Murals

P1070304

The church, San Miguel Arcangel in San Miguel de Allende Mexico, is impressive in its architecture, but the murals have their own striking presence amongst the grandeur. Here in the side Capilla, or chapel, is the Cristo de la Conquista, a sixteenth century image of Christ.

In none of the reading I have done on San Miguel have I been able to find who the muralists are who created these works in this church; and also for those murals outside the capilla in the main church

These are just a few of the murals enjoyed for the intricate stories they tell, and the art itself.

To take a bit of a break from churches, next week,The Sunday Traveler will take you shopping at Fabrica La Aurora that contains creative art studios, galleries and restaurants.

Hasta entonces.

  4. La Fabrica La Aurora is a great place. It’s not just the art, but an excellent coffee shop and two fine restaurants.

  5. Love your Sunday Traveler series! These murals are beautiful. The first two shown feel like a little bit of Diego Rivera mixed with a little bit of Picasso. Thanks for sharing!
