Iglesia de Santo Domingo de Guzmán, with Capilla del Rosario - Historical Building Puebla - Mexico

Santo Domingo is a must-see for aficionados of old churches, and even those less enthusiastic about religious monuments can easily spend an hour in the stunning interior. Worshippers and tourists entering from busy shopping street 5 Mayo will see a row of chapels on each side, as well as a souvenir shop.

The highlight of the visit is the Capilla del Rosario. Itself nearly the size of a church, this chapel is sumptuously decorated with gold-covered ornaments, pillars, altars, religious figures and animals. No wonder it was called “the eighth wonder of the world” at its opening in 1690.
