Admire 16th-century architecture at Iglesia de Tonantzintla, which was constructed over four centuries. The religious structure serves as the main temple of the town of Puebla, and was constructed in four phases, which lasted from the 16th to the 19th century. This included setting the basis for the structure, adding the tower, dome, transept, and altar piece, constructing a new facade, and finally adding the final decorative touches. Inside, find a towering nave where natural light fills the room through glass windows. The interior features touches of baroque new Spain style, including indigenous motifs, such as an angel wearing a feathered headdress.

  • The church was builded by locals, top notch Mexican Baroque architecture, full of allucinogen plants, the decoration is like a mushroom fly with angels  more »
  • This church is probably the best example of Churigaresque architecture and art in the world! If you thought Baroque was overly ornamented, then you are in for a very big surprise!  more »
  • It is definitely "must see" in Puebla - Church full of golden decoration.During the Easter it was also decorated accordingly, so it had very beautiful atmosphere.  more »
