One of the places to go see in Puebla, a nice afternoon walking around it is beautiful outside and inside, even if you are not Catholic it's a beautiful place to see and admire.

I visited the place on 12th October 2016 with my friends. It is one of the historic place in the city of Puebla. I was particularly mesmerised with its magnificence, grandeur and art work on the roofs of the domes from inside. The maintenance and cleanliness of the place is praiseworthy.

I ggasped when I walked into the tremendous volume this church encloses...of immense proportion, it rivals the Cathedral in Mexico City, if not in gilt. No Photos allowed inside the Cathedral, photographers.

A must see and right on the same road as Nueva Luna Hotel! The details in the Cathedral are so intricate - they have a video that tells the history which is great. It's very well taken care of!
