You can see why the Poblanos hold this place in their hearts. The Lady is everywhere, but she's very beautiful here.

Amazing. What a sight with all that gold. Glad we happened back to see this one (we'd first dropped by midday when the church was closed). It was moving to see the, what seemed like infinite, decorations gleaming in the late afternoon light. I would recommend going after 4 pm to get a sense of the place with sunlight beaming it during the late afternoon.

The chapel is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. All the decorations are in gold. If you visit Puebla you MUST go there. I would like to add that the travel warning for Puebla is not longer there. Give yourself a chance and visit Puebla, a safe and amazing city!

Please dont miss visiting this beautifull chapel. It is just like the Santo Domingo Church in Oaxaca but in a small scale.
