The Spanish conquest brought two major legacies to Mexico: The Spanish language and Catholicism. There are many Catholic churches in Mexico which are some of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen. The rich history dates back to the 1500s.
The faith conversion of Indians in Mexico wasn’t very hard as the formal institutions of Church and State weren’t established yet. The goal of the first Franciscans who arrived in Mexico was to bring a Spiritual Conquest which is what started the Catholic movement. The Friars built churches on temple sites, transforming the space for Catholic worship.
While there are many churches in San Miguel, The Church of Immaculate Conception is one that can be seen from almost anywhere in the city.
