Is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever been to. Small, but highly decorated. The details in decoration are simply beautiful and with lots of gold. This is the nicest church Puebla has. A must see, definitely you can´t leave without visiting it.

The city of Puebla is looking great the last couple of years. This was my first visit to this church and after seeing churches all over Europe I was not expecting to be so impressed. My jaw dropped and hearing the explanation I was so moved I cried.

This may have been the most amazing church I've visited. Including those in Europe. Plan to make this a stop as you walk around Puebla. Photos do not do this chapel justice by any means.

If you're in Puebla, you must visit the chapel, will be amazed as soon as you look inside. Just have to wait until the mass ends to get inside.

Outside, the Capilla del Rosario is unassuming and plain. But, inside, WOW!!! One is left in utter awe and amazement. It is simply breathtakingly beautiful!!! A true Puebla "Must See."

Was amazed by the details and beauty! Worth a stop! You think the main church is great, but the chapel is the real gem!

This is a must visit. The Chapel is quite amazing and it is 400 years old. A great place to reflect.

Pretty unbelievable place. Dripping with gold and the Iglesia de Santo Domingo is also increible. It is not open all the time. When we were there, it opened at 4 PM but it is well worth the wait. You will be blown away by the ostentatious display of wealth.

This is a special location that I believe most people would find quite inspiring, whether of not one is a person of faith. It is an inspiring and uplifting experience to be surrounded by such beauty and elaborate creative style. The mind can be boggled by the sheer immensity and grandeur and stylistic presentation of the angelic realms that are... More
