Stunning -- in fact, a bit over-the-top
Sep 2021
Supposedly, the Church of Santo Domingo and its famous Capilla del Rosario open to visitors at 3:00 Sunday. However, we had to stand in line for 20 minutes. There were only six people ahead of us, but the nun managing the gate didn’t open it until 3:10, and we had to wait to enter until the previous six people had been inside ten minutes. Another complication (but also an interesting element) was that the Capilla del Rosario was being prepared for a fancy wedding for which the participants were gathering as we waited. We were allowed to tour the main church, with its handsome altar featuring polychrome statues of 18 saints, but we had to peer at the chapel from 20 feet back in the transept. That was enough for us to appreciate the effect – layer upon layer of glittering gilded plaster, an over-the-top display of the most elaborate Mexican Baroque.

In Mexico they say: No todo lo que brilla es oro. Except when you are in this place, because everything that shines here, is gold. A most place to visit while in Puebla!

A must see! Catholic or not!

It is officially a treasure of architecture in all of Mexico (i would say in all of the Americas)! Seldom you would see so much love put into the building and decoration of a chapel. Spanish Baroque dominates the many styles employed in this chapel. When Covid is over, the chapel makes a perfect place to quietly pray a rosary. During Covid though, a strict policy of only 4 people can come in at once, and you are encouraged to make your visit efficiently to provide a chance for others, So plan for extra time. During Covid, visits start at 11:00 AM, regardless of what other older sources may state. The chapel is inside the Church of "Santo Domingo de Guzman" (St. Dominic). This is important when asking for directions. Enjoy your visit!

Hola Pilgrim, Queremos agradecerte por tomarte el tiempo de escribir esta reseña de la Capilla del Rosario. Tus palabras son muy gentiles y llenas de razón, es una capilla digna de apreciarse por cualquier persona, ya sea creyente o no. En su interior concentra no solo las cualidades más representativas del barroco novohispano, sino que también integra elementos teológicos y representaciones de un contexto histórico que la convierten en la denominada “Octava Maravilla del Mundo”, de hecho, fue la ganadora del torneo de la arquitectura barroca en América en el V-CIBI (2020). Gracias por permitirnos proporcionarte esta experiencia y esperamos verte pronto. ¡Cuídate mucho!

Stunning!

This was one of the most beautiful chapels that we have ever seen! The ornate gold workmanship is stunning. We went back a couple more times to try to view the chapel in the evenings, but it was either closed or a mass was taking place. Check the hours before going.

This beautiful and ornate place of worship didn’t disappoint. The workmanship in so many of the churches in Mexico is beautiful. This one is over the top.

Stunning chapel
Mar 2020 • Family
Do not miss this gorgeous Baroque chapel in Puebla. It is part of a larger church, also beautiful in its own right. Our guide was key since there is a lot of symbolism embedded in the chapel details which we would’ve missed otherwise.
