With so many unique churches in Puebla, this one is not to be missed. Beautifully preserved and lovely architecture here. You can take a local bus which will take you to the heart of Tonanzintla. Everything is within short distance by foot. Must see!

It was nice to see some photos of the interior on this site. Because no photos are allowed now inside. The detail is incredible of all the characters. The outside is simple but lovely. What I would expect from a church named after Mary. I...More
