Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Viterbo, Queretaro City

4.7
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Queretaro City
Admire the 18th-century Baroque design of Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Viterbo. The church is dedicated to Saint Rose of Viterbo, known for her miraculous powers, as well as her support of the papacy. Checkerboard details on the facade and large, curving buttresses protrude from the church walls, giving it an unusual exterior. Snap some photos from the plaza and fountain in front, and then head inside to see an abundance of gold details, a magnificent altar lined with golden framed paintings, and many sculptures of religious figures. Our Queretaro City trip itinerary planner makes visiting Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Viterbo and other Queretaro City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Queretaro City

Vacations in Queretaro tend to focus almost exclusively on the historic center, with the city's industrialized fringes offering little of interest to tourists. The vast majority of accommodations remain in the city's heart, with the dual-direction Carre Benito Juarez and surrounding streets offering a selection of budget-friendly and boutique hotels. If you're just looking for a place to rest your head before moving on to your next destination, look south to the neighborhood of Las Misiones, or west to La Capilla, where you can find some comfortable roadside hotels.
