Owner description: This ornate baroque church was built by indigenous converts between 1571 and 1611.

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 from the 2017 earthquake. The damage requires restoration from highly and specially skilled specialists making repairs very costly in this very small, poor town. It is actually located outside of Puebla in the town of Huejotzingo meaning 'Little Town of the Willow Trees'. Currently all services are conducted outside the front entrance to the church.

Gorgeous church - the one not to miss in a city of 360 churches. Stunning from top to bottom and absolutely enormous. The organ takes up half of it in the middle. We had a walking tour of the city which was lovely to have someone explain the details and significance to us.

We visited this beautiful and historic church on our recent tour of downtown Puebla. So much gild everywhere, and all the ornate details on the decorations and statues in the chapel really makes this church an awesome and a must visit location.

I walked in and around this one quickly but it wasn’t until later that I’d wished I’d done my homework. It has an interesting history apart from being such a bright and colourful church.
Located in the centre of town it’s easily accessible bit with limited viewing times.
Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly. No wifi. No fee.

It's another church. Like many others (oldish and a bit run down) except for the Rosary Chapel tucked into a side wing.
