Calzada Fray Antonio de San Miguel
La calzada Fray Antonio de San Miguel se construyó con el fin de comunicar el centro de la Ciudad con la zona oriente en donde se había establecido el Santuario de Guadalupe; su diseñador José Servín atendió y concluyó en 1732 la petición del obispo Escalona y Calatayud. A pesar de las diversas intervenciones sufridas a través del tiempo, este lugar es de los pocos que conservan trazo y fisonomía de su época de construcción en la ciudad.

A finales del siglo XVIII se incorporaron bancas y baldosas de piedra para hacer accesible y disfrutable el trayecto; intervenciones contemporáneas han contribuido a la diversidad de árboles en la calzada y el alumbrado público ha variado de acuerdo a la época. Particularmente en el mes de diciembre, este espacio y sus alrededores reciben la visita basta de peregrinos y comerciantes con motivo de las celebraciones festivas de la Virgen de Guadalupe; siendo costum- bre de los morelianos pasear por este tradicional espacio.

road was built in order to communicate the city centre with the eastern area, where it had established the Santuario de Guadalupe; Its designer José Servin attended and completed in 1732 the request of Bishop Escalona and Calatayud. Despite several interventions sustained over time, this place is the few that keep stroke and physiognomy of its construction time in the city.

At the end of the eighteenth century stone benches and tiles were added to make the journey accessible and enjoyable; contemporary interventions have contributed to the diversity of trees in the roadway and public lighting has varled according to the time. Particularly in the month of December this space and its surroundings are visited by pilgrims and merchants on the occasion of the festive celebrations of the Virgin of Guadalupe; being custom of the morelianos to walk by this traditional space.
