April Architectural Walking Tour
By Jerry Davis
Keeping up with the Joneses (or I should say, los Garcías) in colonial San Miguel involved stone, mortar, a few bricks, and of course plenty of money. There were no flat screens TVs, BMWs, or upscale vacation destinations then, so an ostentatious mansion was the best way to flaunt your success. You can visit some of the best examples on the Architectural Walking Tour, Thursday, April 16.

In front of the Parroquia
The church showed off its power and importance too, with not only impressively large buildings, but plenty of them. Civil architecture lagged behind, but San Miguel does boast of having City Hall número uno! And now San Miguel is also embracing modernism and important examples are shown on the two-and-a-half hour, flat walking tour.
If you want all of the details, a few colorful legends, and a fun tour guided by experts, join us in the Jardín, directly in front of the Parroquia at 10am and bring a donation of 200 pesos or US$20 or Canadian. The money goes to support a medical charity that screens and treats thousands of children yearly. To book a private group tour, or for more information, call Betse Davies at 152 2380.
