  • It is a place that you can not fail to visit, a real gem. There are people who tell you the story, the amount of gold that is there and the care they must take to keep it impeccable.

  • A beautiful place with lots of history and lots of gold. It's inside the church which is also beautiful. All its history and majesty is unique. It is a must when visiting Puebla. It is located in the center of the city of Puebla.

  • The Chapel of the Rosary leaves us a vision of Baroque Architecture, of the vision of a world with rosettes, and gold in praise of God

  • One of the most picturesque places I have been to in Mexico. I found it more interesting than the Cathedral in Puebla. Definitely one not to miss.
  • Not worth your time. The other cathedral in the main plaza looked a lot more impressive. Also the "guide" who talks about the church will ask for money at the end for his time. Totally not as impressive as the reviews say it would be.
  • This place was a waste of a visit. The gold part of the church was closed off. We sat through a 45 minute speech thinking it would open and it didnt, then the guy was berating us for not giving him money.
  • A baroque masterpiece! For me, it is the #1 attraction in Puebla!
  • Love the architecture and the details. Nice place to vist.
