January 2016 - San Miguel de Allende Mexico
The Iglesia Nuestra Señora de La Salud dates back to the 18th century when it served as a chapel for the adjacent San Francisco de Sales College. The entrance to this church is crowned by a gigantic carved seashell. In the center of the seashell is a single eye enclosed in a triangle, an ancient symbol for God’s omnipresence and not, as some believe, for the church’s ability to cure eye disease. This is the only church that has indigenous influences in its facade.
