"Cozumel's Main Church In San Miguel"

Cozumel's main church, Iglesia de San Miguel, continues to be a central meeting point for the predominantly Catholic locals. More than 100 years ago, farmers digging up a field found a beautiful ivory statue of St. Michael the Archangel brandishing a gold sword and crown. It is thought to be a gift from Juan Grijalva who landed on Cozumel in 1518. The statue was found on Sept 29th, the holy day of San Miguel, and Cozumelenos took that as a heavenly sign to name church and town San Miguel. The statue now rests on the church's altar.
