  • 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.
  • Simply beautifil inside. I was privilaged to get married here. Stunning.
  • Breathtaking!
  • Magnífica capilla del Rosario, su decorado barroco te asombrará
  • A true jewel of Mexican art! Safety pin! The Chapel is bathed in gold where you want to look at it. The sculptures, paintings, altarpieces, everything looks impressive. It is worth listening to an explanation of the Chapel to understand the symbolism.
