This small chapel is in the Iglesia de Santo Domingo a short walk from the Zocolo. The church itself is not that unusual so one is not prepared for the magnificence of the chapel within. It is truly incredible. Don't miss it.

It is a small chapel in downtown that has all made out of gold! If you go with a tour guide you can learn a lot of history and cultural data about its construction and meaning.

I am not a big fan of barocco, but this chapel is amazing. The most beautiful chapel I ever saw, and I saw A LOT all around the world.

After the cathedral this is a must see atraction, if you get a guide it will be a lot more interesting. right next is the old convent and now is a beautiful museum, make sure you have several hours for you to visit.

Is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever been to. Small, but highly decorated. The details in decoration are simply beautiful and with lots of gold. This is the nicest church Puebla has. A must see, definitely you can´t leave without visiting it.

The city of Puebla is looking great the last couple of years. This was my first visit to this church and after seeing churches all over Europe I was not expecting to be so impressed. My jaw dropped and hearing the explanation I was so moved I cried.

This may have been the most amazing church I've visited. Including those in Europe. Plan to make this a stop as you walk around Puebla. Photos do not do this chapel justice by any means.
