Church of Santo Domingo, Puebla, Mexico

The card is unused.  I bought it myself in 1996.
La espectacular Capilla de la Virgen del Rosario.
Impressive Chapel of the Virgin of the Rosary.
Puebla, Puebla, México.

The Santo Domingo Church was built between 1571 and 1611 in a baroque style.  Here we can see another stunning altar.  In fact the whole chapel is an incredible sight.  It has to be seen to be believed.


  1. I am sure this postcard image, beautiful as it is, does not catch the beauty of the original.

  2. Isn't this beautiful? I love to visit (and see pictures of) the Spanish colonial churches and old mission churches.

    I wonder if you recall that the Battle of Puebla is what Cinco de Mayo commemorates? When the French were driven out of that area.

    I am sure you know the date of that battle, at any rate... :)


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
