  • Templo de Santo Domingo is located bit north of zócalo but it’s worth the detour for its Capilla del Rosario. The elaborate gold decoration definitely sets it apart from the dozen other churches.  more »
  • The convent temple of Santo Domingo de Guzmán is a Catholic Church belonging to the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the Province of Santiago de México. It communicates the body of the temple with the great chapel of the Rosary, an example of the Novohispano Baroque, once considered the "eighth wonder of the world".1 It is located on Avenue 5 de Mayo and 4 Poniente of the Historic Center. A visit that is worth a lot and that is almost obligatory when visiting Puebla
