Who is San Miguel?

San Miguel (Saint Michael) is one of the seven archangels and is among the three whose names appear in the Bible.  The other two are Gabriel and Rafael.  The Holy Church gives San Miguel the highest place among the archangels and calls him “Prince of the heavenly spirits”, “head or head of the heavenly militia”.  From the Old Testament he appears as the great defender of the people of God against the Devil and his powerful defense continues in the New Testament.

Very appropriately, he is represented in art as the warrior angel, the conqueror of Lucifer, putting his heel on the head of the infernal enemy, threatening him with his sword, piercing him with his spear, or ready to chain him forever in the abyss of hell.  Christendom from the early Church reveres San Miguel as the angel who defeated Satan and his followers and cast them out of heaven with his sword of fire.

He is traditionally recognized as the guardian of the Christian armies against the enemies of the Church and as a protector of Christians against the diabolical powers, especially at the time of death.

Día de San Miguel (29 September)

San Miguel is the patron saint of the neighborhood “El Castillo” or the Castle.  These are the streets and alleyways at the top of the hill, closest to the San Miguel Castle and some of the surrounding streets.  This usually includes 3 days of activities, food, drinks, music, dancing and plenty of fun.  Each night is full of people gathering at the makeshift bars on the neighborhood streets, as well as kids enjoying the events as well.  The parties usually begin on the 28th and continue into the wee hours every night, typically ending the final night with fireworks.
