San Miguel's heart, the plaza commonly known as El Jardín (the Garden), is where much of the town's action takes place, from political rallies and live music to dance presentations and fireworks on special occasions. You can get a real feel for the town just by sitting on one of its wrought-iron benches, where locals and expats alike enjoy the early-morning sunshine and share some gossip before attending to the serious business of the day. The Parroquia bells toll each
quarter hour, and at dusk the square fills with musicians, mothers and their kids, and teenagers taking their ritual evening stroll around the garden.
