One must enter the unattractive exterior to proceeds down to main altar and see the massive gorgeous Rosary Gold gilded chapel. Unbelievable how art could be so overwhelming!

This is a Franciscan church which is evident by the Franciscan robe tie on the exterior of the posas (Look for the three knots on the chord signifying charity, poverty and obedience). The church interior was closed as it suffered a good deal of damage...More

This church has lovely interiors. And it is very close to the Zocolo area. It is definately worth a visit on it's own after seeing the Rosario Chapel.
