The most sumptuous place of worship I have ever seen. The amount of gold used is incredible. This is Mexican Baroque splendor at its finest. Capilla del Rosario should be on your list to see when you are in Puebla.

The Rosary Chapel took my breath away. Definitely make it a stop on your walk through the historic centre - it doesn't take long to pop in and have a look.

Visited the chapel with a tour guide--very helpful in understanding the Catholic iconography. Given the more austere exterior, the interior seems even more dramatic.

This chapel is quite spectacular and well worth seeing. The amount of gold is amazing, and this historical church makes an unforgettable impression.

There are many churches / chapels/ cathedrals in Puebla and we went into quite a few! We visited this whilst on a walking tour of the town. It is extremely ornate and our guide explained the history and meaning of all the decorations.

Our tour guide brought us here after a short walk. From the outside, you'll see an old church, nothing fancy. But inside, the place is amazing. The main church altar has life-sized statues of saints, and in the Rosary chapel the design is so magnificent....More

This is a church with gold on the walls and in the paintings, very impressive, in the city center of Puebla.

Amazing. That is the only word that I can think of. Enter to the church and go straight to the altar. This incredible capilla is at your left hand. Nothing like it.

If your hotel is close to the Zocalo or close to the Center of the city you can walk, if you are not in the area you can take a taxi
