Beautiful chapel. Well worth the time to visit this and the adjoining church. Be respectful and do not enter if there is a mass in progress

I have never seen so much gold in a cathedral. The entire cathedral is so very ornately decorated. I was rather struck with the extensive depiction of the suffering of Christ vs His love and forgiveness. I guess it was the thoughts when this was built.

This is an absolutely stunning Cathedral. The ceiling was one to rival the Sistine Chapel and it had gold everywhere. The paintings depicted brown faces to reflect the local Indians who helped construct the church.

This is a exquisite example of a Baroque style church in Puebla. It is magnificent-just stunningly beautiful. The church was built in stages and the history of the church is fascinating. Photos cannot capture the beautiful. Take time to explore around the church and take in re local culture and flavor of this colonial city.

all the gold in the church and its sheer size will dazzle you to submission! we were lucky or unlucky to witness a wedding at the chapel during our visit; so saw a lovely bride but couldn't see the inner chapel up close. still so worth a visit!

Mesmerizing... This Domus Aureus is all made of a special 21 karat gold, the technique they used in order to build it up is just amazing!!! Get a guide, he will explain it as well as the iconography, it's really really interesting. NOT TO MISS !!

I've "done" lots of churches in my travels. You get tired of them, right? Well, don't miss this one -- it's simply stunning. Plus, the walk down the pedestrian street on a weekend, brimming with life is worth it by itself.
