A Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance hybrid construction.
Three centuries of construction.
San Miguel Church took nearly three centuries to finish, with the first stone of its foundation dating back to around 1484. The locals were visited by the Catholic Monarchs at this time and took advantage of their visit to ask if their small 13th century chapel on the outskirts of the city could be extended. This construction resulted in what you can see today - a hybrid church in a mixture of common architectural styles through the centuries: Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and styles from 18th century reforms. Considered a National Monument in 1931, the San Miguel Church has survived several disasters: such as the destruction of its original tower in 1721 when it was hit by lightning and an earthquake in 1755. Today there are tours inside which detail its eventful existence.
