“A TRUE MASTERPIECE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

I have been around the world and have visited some of the most exciting and important churches around the world, but this is truly a masterpiece! I will say that I was far more impressed with the Rosary Chapel than I was with the cathedral of Notre Dame. ALTHOUGH I LOVED THE CATHEDRAL OF NOTRE DAME!!! This just gives you a bit of an idea of how GLORIOUS this is. I was simply in AWE!

plan a visit if one is not planned already and visit this unforgettable chapel which is a true wonder, some even say it is the 8th world wonder.

Enjoy!

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

A must-see when visiting Puebla. Take time to absorb the art. Do not allow any religious beliefs to befog the appreciation of a true labor of love and faith. Sit for a while in the chapel where there is always an art history course is being taught by professors in many languages.

“OMG!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Wow. No expense spared here! The Spanish conquistadors certainly adored their gold and it shows! No such thing as "over-the-top" in Mexico, except possibly here!

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Beautiful church. Would be nice to have guided tours. There are "volunteer" tour guides available who give pretty good tours for tips.
