Oratorio San Felipe Neri

Oratorio San Felipe Neri, San Miguel de Allende, April 2017

On Palm Sunday, one week before Easter, the Oratorio San Felipe Neri in San Miguel de Allende opens the small chapels and cloister to the public. These are normally reserved exclusively for the clergy. We believe this corner of the Oratorio, bordering on Loreto, houses the oldest religious buildings in SMA. The whole interior is amazing, not a square inch of plaster which isn’t a mural, and this, one of the two chapels we got access to (there is a third) is a bejewelled roccoco spectacle.
