Miguel Fisac Serna (1913–2006) was a Spanish architect, urban planner, and painter.[1][2] He was a member of Opus Dei from 1935 to 1955,[3] but later publicly criticized that organization as well as the character of its founder, Mons. Josemaría Escrivá.



He was born 29 September 1913 in Daimiel in Spain.[4][1] His father was Joaquín Fisac, his mother Amparo Serna.[5] He had six brothers and sisters, among them Dolores 'Lola' Fisac (1909-2005), who became one of the first female Opus Dei members.[6] He moved to Madrid aged 17 to study architecture. He was member of Catholic organization Opus Dei from 1935 till 1955, when he left.[3][1] He fled to France during the Civil War along with Opus Dei founder Josemaría Escrivá and a group of other members. He returned after the war, and graduated from ETSAM in 1942.[3] He married Ana María Badell in 1957.[7] He died 12 May 2006 in Madrid.[4]
