Templo de Nuestra Señora de la Salud, San Miguel de Allende

The Templo de Nuestra Señora de la Salud (Church of Our Lady of Health), San Miguel de Allende, dates to the 18th century and was designed by Luis Felipe Neri de Alfaro. This church was formerly the chapel of the San Francisco de Sales school, now part of the University of Guanajuato next door. The distinctive exterior features a concave seashell motif just visible in the previous post, and the altar, seen here, is dedicated to Saint Cecilia, patroness of music and musicians. On her feast day, November 22, musicians play at the church entrance.
