Iglesia de Tonantzintla, Puebla

(4.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Iglesia de Tonantzintla into our Puebla vacation trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The Church is very pretty and an of the most antique ones that we have in the area, is not very big, but with a great view, the colors and images are unique... Outside there are people you are selling typical souvenirs!

  • It is Church of just 20 minutes from Puebla capital and the wonderful thing about this church, is the unique interior decoration, which is upholstered with strokes indigenous Angels which as mentioned you makes it unique in Mexico. Taking advantage of the trip to visit the INAOE (National Institute for Astrophysics, optics and electronics)
