The periphery of the Jardín Principal will be restored, including the atrium of the parish church of St. Michael the Archangel and Las Monjas church, among others. The budget also includes the lighting of public and religious buildings.

The federal office of the National Fund for Culture and Arts allocated more than 32 million pesos for the restoration of buildings in this World Heritage City. According to information from the local government, the budget will be applied to the maintenance and restoration of six frontal columns as well as the structure in homage to Friar Juan de San Miguel.

The church of the Immaculate Conception (Las Monjas Church) will also receive attention. The paint will be removed and renewed as well as the bricks in the main vault. The incrustations on the sculpture to Pio Nono (in the main façade) will also be cleaned.

Around the Jardín Principal there are 24 columns. Some of them have begun to lean over time. All of them will be cleaned and restored, and those that are leaning will be straightened. The iron on the lanterns will be repaired, the glass cleaned, and their bulbs changed.

San Miguel Shines

San Miguel Shines, a program launched by the local administration consists of the lighting of religious and public buildings with outstanding architecture. The Puente de los Héroes (Las Monjas bridge) will be added to this program, as well as the churches at Chorro, San Juan de Dios, La Salud, and the Oratorio. The works (including underground cabling) will be done between May and June.
