The Parish Church of San Miguel was built at the end of the 19th century according to the design of Don Faustino Florez Llamas, when Ponteareas began to experience a remarkable urban growth. Made in neo-Gothic style, the style of the time, it preserves in its main façade a tympanum of most ancient chronology. The arches are a clear example of ogival style. The main façade is distributed into two bodies, with bell tower of octagonal structure in the central axis. The interior boasts the altarpiece that presides over the altar of neo-Gothic style.
