¡Bienvenidos a San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México!
This model was created by MiniWorld3D collaborator Daniel Muradás.
La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel (Spanish for Parish of Saint Michael Archangel) is a catholic church and main landmark of the city of San Miguel de Allende, in the state of Guanajuato, in central Mexico.
It is one of the most-photographed churches in Mexico and the two tall towers of its neo-Gothic façade can be seen from most parts of town. The church was built in the 17th century with a traditional Mexican façade. Howevr, almost 200 years later, the original façade was demolished and the current Gothic façade was constructed in 1880 by Zeferino Gutierrez, 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 more a work of imagination than a faithful reconstruction. The main façade has two levels with arches, pilasters, floral motifs and a frieze on the first level. The second level has a choir window framed by pink sandstone. The bell tower is Moorish (from Wikipedia).
MiniWorld3D is excited to bring this model to life as a homage to all the people of Mexico and San Miguel de Allende.
