Cemetaries

by hamnerex

My cousin, Barbara Faith Corrovibuis, lived with her husband Alfonso in San Miguel and died in 1996. Her husband died a year later. Where could I find information where they are buried in San Migue? I will be visiting in October.

Check in the munincipal offices which are located on the east side of the road to Queretaro, about 3/4 of a mile south of Soriana (big store in a big shopping center) its a big yellow building you cant miss- a blue colored bus will drop you right there if want.

If thet are interred at the old cemetary you will only be allowed to visit nov 2

Travel Tips for San Miguel de Allende

Church at Atotonilco

by searcey

Outside of San Miguel on the road to Dolores Hidalgo is the town of Atotonilco. The World Monuments Fund named this historic and artistically important pilgrimage church to its list of "100 most endangered monuments." With a grant from American Express and the State of Guanajuato in 1996 a Mexican non-profit organization began work on the restoration of the Chapel of the Virgin of the Rosary. The church is sometimes referred to as the "Sistine Chapel of the Americas" and almost every square inch of the walls and ceilings inside the Sanctuary is covered with fresco paintings in a riotous outpouring of Mexican folk art. The murals also portray angels, archangels, saints, and demons amidst decorations of fanciful flowers and fruits. It is truly worth a visit.

Arrival of wealthy Spaniards and Creoles

by karenincalifornia

In the 17th century, San Miguel saw the arrival of wealthy Spaniards (peninsulares) and Creoles from other parts of the American continent. With their money, they built elaborate baroque style homes, permanently distinguishing San Miguel from other towns in the region.

By 1750, the town had earned the reputation of being one of the most important and prosperous centers of New Spain.

Class divisions nevertheless existed. Indigenous people and those of mixed race lived in adobe huts in the outskirts of town ("los barrios").

San Miguel de Allende

"The Cathedral"

This gothic style cathedral is just beautiful. The amazing thing about it it's that it was designed and built by an architect who was never in Europe. He learned the features of the european gothic cathedral just from drawings and postal cards. the he used all of his knowledge to give his hometown a wonderful gothic cathedral.
