The Capilla del Rosario is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and resplendent Cathedrals I have ever witnessed. The intricate architecture evokes wonder in one upon arrival. It is a must see in all its glory if visiting this great town.

We visited Puebla Mexico two weeks ago. We went to the most amazing chapel I have seen! It was built in the 18th century and it is a piece of art! The ceiling and walls are all decorated with figures made of stucco and 24k...More

You will need a good minute to take it all in. Its definitely worth a stop to check it out. Interesting history, as it took 50 years to decorate and was primarily decorated by indigenous artisans.

This chapel in the Santo Domingo Church in Puebla is beautiful--so much tile work and gold. You can see the brilliance of the 23.5 carat gold in the "cypress" over the altar vs the painted gilding on the walls, but all of it is tremendous.

We've seen a lot of churches and cathedrals over the years, and there's a cathedral in my small home town, but this church is special. The amount of gold is astounding.

It is worth it to go a bit out of your way to see this chapel, especially if you enjoy religious architecture. It is over-the-top gold and white gorgeous.

The inside is narrow but the ceilings and artwork are spectacular. There was a mass taking place in the side chapel of gold so we could not enter. Beautiful short stop on a tour of Puebla's lovely historic buildings and places.

this chapel, located within the church of Santo Domingo, is all clad in gold, baroque style with talavera (a typical Mexican porcelain) and is considered one of the eight wonders of the world.

From the outside you can’t really tell, but once you step inside, it’s a great surprise! The main attraction is the chapel, which is sall but really stunning.

If your hotel is close to the Zocalo or close to the Center of the city you can walk, if you are not in the area you can take a taxi
