In Dine, San Miguel de Allende by Christina Silvestri

The Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, also known as the pink cathedral of San Miguel de Allende, is one of the top sites to see when visiting the beautiful city of San Miguel. The cathedral is a grand, neo-Gothic 17th-century parish church that’s famous for its soaring pink spires and lofty, ornate sanctuary.

Located on the south side of the city’s main plaza next to the lush green El Jardín, the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel is not to miss as San Miguel de Allende’s most recognizable landmark.

Grab a drink and post up at the following rooftops and terraces that offer the very best views overlooking the iconic Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel.
