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!

As stated by others... you will never see a Catholic Church like this. If you are into symbolism... you could sit here for hours. Take a taxi or Uber, for sure.

Consider this a must when visiting Puebla. Even better than fancy and shiny gold,a proof on the merge of two cultures could be witnessed and would replace the perspective on how traditional colonial architecture is all about Puebla art tourism. Flowers, fruits and plumes would...More
