  • 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.
