Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Viterbo, Queretaro City

Church · Tourist Spot
Admire the 18th-century Baroque design of Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Viterbo. The church is dedicated to Saint Rose of Viterbo, known for her miraculous powers, as well as her support of the papacy. Checkerboard details on the facade and large, curving buttresses protrude from the church walls, giving it an unusual exterior. Snap some photos from the plaza and fountain in front, and then head inside to see an abundance of gold details, a magnificent altar lined with golden framed paintings, and many sculptures of religious figures.
