This the Chapel of the Rosario that is located in the Church of Santo Domingo. The chapel is on the short list of "must see" while in Puebla. The Chapel was built between 1650 and 1690 and was the first to be dedicated to the Our Lady of the Rosary. The chapel is filled with symbolism, as it is filled with images and elements which are representative of the Baroque of New Spain. The chapel contains three themes important to the Church, the mysteries of the rosary, the virtues associated with it and the Virgin of the Rosary herself. The chapel is decorated with sculpted plaster that has been gilded done by local artists. There are also six paintings done by José Rodriguez Carnero as well as paintings by the altar depicting the life of the Virgin.
This is the front of the church with some impressive bronze pieces on display.
Mexicans love their cell phones...this policewoman was hard at it along with the woman seated on the bench...but she must have sensed something and looked up just before I snapped the photo.
