I'd actually passed this church a couple of times and taken photos from the outside before going in. It turned out to be one of the most beautiful things in Oaxaca. The ceilings are elaborately carved and painted in gold. The interior is absolutely stunning and worth taking a look at.

What an amazing church this is. We were lucky to go when they had a wedding and they went all out to entertain all the public

Another nice church in Mexico. If you wait for just the right time, all the gold shimmers in the sunlight. Being the most popular wedding site in Oaxaca, you have a good chance of seeing the parade of the wedding party complete with giant dancing paper mache sculptures of the bride and groom.

Majestic Church, I don't know how to describe so much beauty, open to the public and you can pray, walk, and take pictures, you can compare with beautiful church in Europe. There is also a little store where you can find a souvenir.

Everyone should visit this temple that is one of the most beautiful in the country. Gold is around everything and architecture wonderful. After visit the temple, don't forget the Jardin etnobotanico or the tumbs that are outside the temple as an other attraction

Both the inside and outside of this central Church are beautiful. It's hard to miss the church of you are going up and down the strip in Oaxaca City.

This is a must see for visitors who want to see and experience the New World Baroque and the Baroque style in general. The views and images are overwhelming and would leave you amazed at the abundance of detail, forms and images. You could easily spend hours looking at the ceilings and altars.

What an incredible experience. Flabbergasted at the ornate altar, the ancient structure, the surroundings. Definitely a place to visit more than once.
