“Simply Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

In an area where in EVERY corner you find a church, parish, cathedral or sanctuary, you get used to seeing the paraphernalia and antiques Catholic churches have in baroque and classic styles... but when you walk into the Santa Rosa Church you see the HUGE difference from the other churches in the area.

It is BEAUTIFUL in and out and the way they keep it and conserve its antique touch surprised me. You might think it's hard to keep a jewel like this nowadays in modern Mexico but the gold and relics are just timeless... I wish I had stay for a mass here, maybe a special celebration like Christmas or any major Catholic holiday.

“marvel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

I'm not easy to impress ( and not a cathoilc) but this church bewildered me with its gold profusion and sculpted pulpit that looks like laces. In the sacristy don't miss the three old confession chairs

“Fine if you like Baroque, I'm into Gothic simplicity myself”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Over-rated, in my opinion. There are many beautiful smaller churches worth a visit in the city. It did not move me at all.

“Wonderful churrigueresque interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Single nave church, with wonderful altarpieces, probably the "jewel" in Queretaro. The "cathedral" San Felipe Neri is a disappointment, as it is neoclassical inside, nothing special. But Santa Rosa de Viterbo is wonderful.

Nice beautiful church, at edge of the Centro historico. Nice plaza outside where there were cafe's and people chilling. water fountains which dance to the music on the hour.
