Come visit old friends in new places!

By Marc Berube

Let’s face it. The Parroquia and the Jardín look like something out of a picture postcard, especially with the ever-changing light causing them to look colorful, inspiring, and breathtaking. But the picture just isn’t complete without the SPA adoptable pups and kittens who used to be there on Thursday afternoons, right?

Our pups and kittens, inquisitive and energetic, decided it was time to explore other parts of our beautiful city, so they’re now waiting for you in Plaza Civica. In some estimations, Plaza Civica rivals the Jardín and Parroquia in beauty as well as providing a bit more of the “real Mexico.”

The steeples and domes, visible in all directions, of the Templo de Nuestra Senora de la Salud, Oratorio and San Francisco churches are fairy tale-like and reminiscent of exotic locales. The clamshell and other intricate carvings on the façade of Templo de Nuestra Senora de la Salud are marvels to explore and contemplate.

The Plaza Civica was originally built in 1555 and it was this plaza, not the main square, which was the hub of the town’s activity, serving both as the market place and the meeting place. Today, a large statue of Ignacio Allende on a horse dominates the plaza.

Sit and experience the less touristy, but more intriguing, day-to-day activities. There are trees and benches, balloon sellers, people passing the time or busily on their way, children playing kick ball while others chase bubbles through the air. There are empanadas, pizza, candies and sweets available, all within the multi-tiered levels of the plaza.

And it’s just a short walk from the Jardín. Simply walk about a block up from the Jardín on San Francisco, turn left onto Juarez and once you reach the old gas pump, it’s across the street. Another option is to simply walk up the street from the Biblioteca past the Oratorio bus stop and you’re at the lower tier of the plaza.

Join Facebook (it’s easy!) so you can follow us at www.facebook.com/spasanmiguel Both have albums of all our cats and dogs available for adoption (biographies, pictures, and videos). Adoptions are 350 pesos, which includes vaccinations, deworming, and spaying/neutering. Come to Plaza Civica, discover a part of San Miguel that you may not have experienced, and spend some time with the pups and kittens who are anxiously awaiting their old friends who used to visit them in the Jardín!
