  • Beautiful baroque chapel, covered with gold foil, which enhances their splendour, do not know of another similar, is within the Church of Santo Domingo in Puebla's downtown, is a wonder and guided visit allows you to get to know it and appreciate it more than just visit it. The last tremor damaged the temple but did not affect the chapel of the Rosary.

  • The Chapel is worth a visit in any case. MNN can book tours, but even without these, one perceives many impressive details.

  • Richly decorated with gold foil, the Capilla del Rosario is awe-inspiring 17th century church that is heavily baroque, but still balanced.
  • Amazing chapel covered in gold leaf. Must see!
  • 8th wonder of the world, golden tinned walls, blood-egg stucco plaster, gold brought from Guanajuato
  • Oh boy, barroque art at its best. A must if you are in Puebla. The experience of being in a space with such design is incredible, even if you are not a follower of barroque art, this little chapel will change your opinion. Is so exciting that even if you don't believe in the catholic Godd, seeing this wonderful piece of art will make you to feel a deep touch with God, or at least with the intentions of the ones that made this amazing site.
  • Stunning Colonial Barroque architecture! Arquitectura Barroco churrigueresco Everything that shines is gold!
