Really beautiful church - must be seen to be appreciated as pictures do not do it justice. Unbelievable detail and workmanship - a must see

This small chapel is in the Iglesia de Santo Domingo a short walk from the Zocolo. The church itself is not that unusual so one is not prepared for the magnificence of the chapel within. It is truly incredible. Don't miss it.

It is a small chapel in downtown that has all made out of gold! If you go with a tour guide you can learn a lot of history and cultural data about its construction and meaning.

I am not a big fan of barocco, but this chapel is amazing. The most beautiful chapel I ever saw, and I saw A LOT all around the world.
