Castle San Miguel was named for Saint Michael the Archangel and was built to complement the 13th Century style of the monastery. The castle houses a large conference room, catered eating facilities and the Gift Shop of El Nino, where visitors may purchase keepsakes as well as religious literature, rosaries, medalions and other items. The castle features custom-made statues of the Archangel Michael and St. Joan of Arc and has many displays of medieval weaponry and armor inside. According to monastery officials, the castle and its contents are intended to exemplify the spirit of those who have donned "the armor of God" throughout the ages and fought for the Glory of God.
