I was astounded by the artwork, the quality of the many statues and the beautiful woodwork. After you have absorbed all of that, you have to look up at the ceiling. It was breathtaking. I had to sit down and absorb it all. Hard to believe the time and talent it took to create such artwork. Well worth the visit... More

Great art work impressive amounts of gold. Go all the way in and the chapel is on the left side. Free of charge. I was amazed at how different it is from current churches.The shop at the church has nice things.

If you are not that much into churches, as there are a lot in Puebla, this is the one you must see. The chapel with all the gold ornaments is just breathtaking

Even by Mexican standards, this is an amazing church and the Rosary Chapel has to be seen to be believed! I don't think that I have ever seen so much gold leaf in one place.

It's worth checking out the opening hours for the convent it's in as the richly decorated chapel full of gold and silver and general bling will leave you stunned. One of the places in Puebla I highly recommend visiting!
