“Breath taking”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

A must-see when visiting Puebla. Take time to absorb the art. Do not allow any religious beliefs to befog the appreciation of a true labor of love and faith. Sit for a while in the chapel where there is always an art history course is being taught by professors in many languages.

“OMG!!!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Wow. No expense spared here! The Spanish conquistadors certainly adored their gold and it shows! No such thing as "over-the-top" in Mexico, except possibly here!

“Very pretty”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Beautiful church. Would be nice to have guided tours. There are "volunteer" tour guides available who give pretty good tours for tips.

“The Jewel in the Crown”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

The detail work and shear size of this place is inspiring. Everywhere you look your mind is taken to another time. Every detail of this Chapel is perfect. I will return again. So lovely.
