Through Harold’s Lens:
La Parroquia Church of St Michael the Archangel is very unique and the emblem of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
Built in the 17th century, this parish church, with it’s Neo-gothic facade and two tall towers, is the most prominent landmark in town.
It towers over the main square and can be seen from a great distance.
San Miguel de Allende is the birthplace of the Mexican revolution.
To pay homage and to celebrate the Mexican Bicentennial, Mexico hired a Frenchman to create a dramatic musical laser light show. This 15-minute long outdoor spectacle of music and moving images told the history of Mexico.
From large projectors mounted on rooftops, this laser light show was projected onto the face of La Parroquia Church every Friday and Saturday night for a year, to the delight of thousands.
Selected for the annual calendar of the Garden Club of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
