  • The Capilla del Rosario is a chapel unlike any other—most of the walls, domes, arches, and moldings are covered in 23-carat gold.
  • It is a beautiful chapel inside Santo Domingo church.
  • I ducked in here on a last minute decision, and boy was I surprised and rewarded. Despite the fact that I lived in Puebla when I attended University at La UDLA, I never stepped foot in the joint. It is awesome. This type of workmanship, dedication, and craftsmanship is something that could inspire and move even the most uninspirable and unmovable among us. Consider this place a MUST SEE.
  • Magnificent church! !
  • Amazing. A must see
