Flying Buttress

The churches are everywhere in San Miguel... I mean three of them right next to one another. They are, of course quite beautiful. They include wonderful stonework. Something interesting, as is often found in conquered societies, there are subtle messages that seem to be saying, 'we are still here and not entirely repressed'. This form of messaging includes subtle symbols and images integrated into the ornamentation of the churches.
