This interior is overwhelming to the eyes, and so charming as it is a bit less refined than the churches in Puebla.

This is one of the most interesting and beautiful churches that I have seen. The outside is coved in tile, which is a product of Puebla. The inside is richly decorated. Worth a visit.

Facade is just breath-taking. If you just see the outside you are more than served. Watch every corner of the talavera tiles decorating the towers, and inside is also very different as natives had the freedom to decorate it with a local touch. Need to...More

The Talvera tile on the exterior of this church is considered one of the great architectural details in Mexico. The interior had great detail. A must see. Combine it with your visit to the Cholula pyramid. 60 peso Uber ride between the two.

Excellent tiles on the outside, very nice on the inside. The main entrance is closed due to reconstruction for the earthquake, but you can get in the side near the cloisters. Well worth the side trip if you are visiting the pyramid.

This is a beatutiful church which was unfortunately hardly hit by the earthquakes (leave a small donation for rebuilding the convent). It is still worth visiting it - come in the morning because some parts of the area are closed in the afternoon.

We dropped by on a group tour. It was a week day and was very quite. The grounds are well kept. Inside is ornate.

Fascinating church covered with local Talavera tile giving it the appearance of a gingerbread house. Interesting interior art reflecting indigenous style--a real contrast to the more European style churches in Puebla City. Worth the trip to Cholula.
