Even if you're not into Mexican Baroque, this chapel is worth the detour and well illustrates the dramatic and theatrical intensity of Mexican Baroque. We also happened to be there during the Feb. 16 earthquake. while Mass was taking place The priest stopped the service...More

You just have to see it to believe it. The detail, the hours of work involved, the history. Every single thing in this church has a story behind it.

We have visited a lot of churches in Mexico, and this chapel is about the best. It is a reasonable size and is an amazing gold extravaganza. The bonus is finding and walking the Calle Cinco de Mayo pedestrian street.

The inside of this church is really something to behold. Incredible artistry, with loads of gold and colour. No admission charge, but there is a place for donations to help repair earthquake damage.

If you are a bit "Churched Out"...pay a visit! This is definitely worth-while and not the kind of stuff you normally see in religious temples. Won't take too long, it is free and you'll be amazed by its beauty and detail.

I am not Catholic but something that I appreciate is the architecture of the churches and know about the history of it. This is something you would like to know.
