Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, San Miguel de Allende The cathedral was built with a traditional Mexican façade. The current Gothic façade was constructed in 1880 by Zeferino Gutierrez, an indigenous bricklayer and self-taught architect, including its pink 'wedding cake' towers thay soar above the town. Stories tell us that he designed the strange pinnacles, based on the design found on a postcard of a Belgian church and instructed builders by scratching plans in the sand with a stick. The rest of the church dates back to the 17th century. Eight bells ring in unison throughout the day reminding San Miguel de Allende of its true magnificence.
