This is one of the must see attractions, just 2 blocks away from the main square (Zocalo). One of the fines examples of the typical Mexican "churrigueresco" style. An overloaded barrocco style. Nearly everything gold plated. An impressive view. Take one of the guided tours and let you explain how this was done, the meanings of the most important items... More

We did not expect to find such a beautiful church as we went inside. The real treasure was around the corner. Gold plated ornaments everywhere. Worth a visit whether you're catholic or not.

One of the best Catholic Chapels in Mexico. During your visit to Puebla do not leave behind this church and of course the Capilla del Rosario. It is better to make the visit with a local guide.

I hired a local guide to take me to this church along with several other places in Puebla. It was very helpful to learn about the Dominicans and their church, as well as to see how the church differed from the great cathedrals.

One of the most beautiful churches I've seen in Mexico. Especially Rosario. I loved also the wooden statues at the square in front of the entrance.
