LA PARROQUIA DE SAN MIGUEL ARCÁNGEL
The original Parish, which was built at the end of the 17th century, was of Baroque architecture, composed of two towers. This changed dramatically in 1880 when the master mason, Don Zeferino Gutiérrez Muñoz, a self-taught architect, was commissioned to create a new facade. It is said that Don Zeferino Gutiérrez was inspired for his design by drawings, engravings and postcards of European cathedrals. The resulting neo-Gothic fantasy, whose towers can be seen from almost anywhere in the city, has made the parish one of the most photographed churches in Mexico.
