La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel in the centre of San Miguel de allende. The best time of day to photograph this amazing and famous church appears to perhaps be early mornings...next time.
From Wikipedia: La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, the current parish church of San Miguel is unique in Mexico and the emblem of the town. It has a Neo-gothic facade with two tall towers that can be seen from most parts of town. It is one of the most photographed churches in Mexico. The church was built in the 17th century with a traditional Mexican facade. The current Gothic facade was constructed in 1880 by Zeferino Gutierrez, who was an indigenous bricklayer and self-taught architect. It is said Gutierrez's inspiration came from postcards and lithographs of Gothic churches in Europe; however, the interpretation is his own and if more a work of imagination than a faithful reconstruction.
