Impressive cathedral. Lots of gold. I'm not a religious person but do love architecture so well worth a visit. Free entry. No cameras

I visited Rosary with my friends on 12th October 2016. I was mesmerised with the grandeur of the place. It is not only magnificent but has the historic importance also. One of the best experience here was the peace and tranquillity which I enjoyed. I sat down for half an hour on the bench inside the Rosary and prayed. I... More

The energy of this amazing structure is incredible. It is so beautiful, that it takes your breath away. I could have sat there for hours just meditating and taking in the mystical energy.

Splendor literally calls as an arch reveals not just a small chapel but a towering altar, dome and uniquely tiled nave. This is an amazing space one wishes one could have more access to as the viewing area is somewhat limited to protect the gilt surfaces. Seen with shafts of sunlight playing on baroque detail, it is a spectacle of... More

Incredible, you will get to the church and actually don't expect what you are going to see inside. Neighborhood around has lots of local attraction right in downtown Puebla. Have your camera ready.

A beautiful chapel whose artwork and ornate decoration will knock your socks off. If you happen to speak Spanish, a gentleman will explain everything to you for whatever you want to give him. An amazing place.

During our visit to Puebla we didn't really have a plan of action. We mostly walked around and visited location as we stumbled upon them. The chapel was located in a small church. We walked in and looked around but when we got to the front of the church we were taking in by the beauty of the Rosary Chapel.... More
