Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, San Miguel de Allende

Corner of Cuna de Allende and Umaran streets
San Miguel de Allende
Mexico's insider take:

The pink, Gothic-style Parroquia is to the city what Gaudí's Sagrada Família is to Barcelona—an ecclesiastic edifice doubling as its metropolitan soul. Dating to the 17th century and set on the south side of the Jardín Principal, the church clearly evokes similarities to important European Gothic counterparts, although its current incarnation dates to more recent 18th- and 19th-century facelifts. Its elaborate spires are an endearing landmark both for their beauty and their location—you can spot them from almost anywhere in the city and find your way to the center of town.—Maribeth Mellin
