You need to go inside and get a tourist guide to be able to understand all the magnificence of the Church. There is a lot of history behind all the paints, altars, sculptures, etc. It is incredible to see an Altar about 60 feet high and about the same width all covered in gold. Everything in there is unique. Just this church alone is worth the trip to Puebla.

One must enter the unattractive exterior to proceeds down to main altar and see the massive gorgeous Rosary Gold gilded chapel.

Unbelievable how art could be so overwhelming!
