If you like a surfeit of gilt, this is for you. Viewable only from outside the gate when I was there. Intricate and ornate and totally over the top. Restraint was a word unknown to the designer.

There are many, many churches in Puebla and the Rosario is "just" one chapel in one of them, but it should for sure not be missed. The details are absolutely gorgeous, the colours amazing and it is just stunning. Make sure you do not go during a service as it will be closed for a while.

I wished there was a guide to explain the chapel to me. A bit overwhelming in the amount of gold. Kept running into weddings (went three times in attempt) and could not really spend enough time there.

If you go on a Saturday afternoon you might get to see a wedding there and it is a beautiful experience with all the gold in the background.
