It is possible to miss it. Really pretty and if you are lucky you can listen in to a tour group as you look at it :-)

Do not miss visiting this part of the Church. It should be called the Golden Chapel. A man was giving a complete talk on it's history while I was visiting. Unfortunately it was all in Spanish.

This is a must in Puebla. Beautiful chapel in gold that tells so much about the religiousness of the people of Puebla as it tells about its history. Really a must!

It is a beautiful and peaceful place with lots of painting and architecture and the extensive use of gold foils is amazing.

It looks a little plain on the outside but once inside, the visual treats just keep coming. The baroque style, statues, paintings and use of light are truly incredible.

Even if you have only a few minutes, walk in and make the turn left towards the front of the church to be in awe by the overwhelming decorations of the chapel!

Lots of gold, nice looking chapel but it's not worth extra effort. 5 min does it justice but if you've seen other nice looking chapels before you would not be awed.

This chapel truly rivals that of any we have seen in Europe. An absolute must see when visiting this beautiful colonial city of Puebla.
