A 475-Year Journey in 15 Minutes

By Jesus Aguado

From the legend of a witch that steals a baby from his cradle to giant puppets that end their performance with a kiss, these are the images of light that daily—every 30 minutes, from 8-10pm—are projected at the Church of La Salud.

The video mapping, presented by the Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development Department, is a journey through the history of the town of San Miguel of the Chichimecas. The projections tell the story of the spiritual conquest that the Chichimecas faced 475 years ago. Then it portrays the War of Independence (1810), and in this part a giant horse rides by. Our national hero Ignacio Allende appears fighting and defending his loved ones, the inhabitants of then San Miguel el Grande.

The projection of music and light ends up with more than 300 photographs of Sanmiguelenses that represent our culture, tradition, religion, and all of our identity. The video also features art crafts and art of this town.

The Church of La Salud is on calle Mesones, on the corner adjacent to the Plaza Cívica, the one with an equestrian statue.
