Photo I shot at San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
This building was designed by a man based solely on postcards from European Gothic cathedrals. So, in many instances he had to guess, since he was not an architect. Nowadays, upon examination, experts say it has not only Gothic elements but many colonial Mexican and native elements alike.
Such a mix beautifies this building, confirming that a good mixture can become something of worth.
San Miguel de Allende is located 4-hour driving north of Mexico City.
