It's a block from Zocalo, free, and beautifully constructed. I'm not one for churches, but the architecture is pretty spectacular!

Didn't actually get in because the opening hours of the church in which the Chapel is are tricky when it is not Saturday/Sunday. During the week on most days the church is closed mid-day. And I couldn't find the hours online. See attached photo for the hours...which I just added to this listing :)

It is a most seeing location, if you go make the time to stay 10 minutes to listen to the Tour guide there they are amazing and really friendly. They explain you about the Capilla. Doesn't take that long and you learn and see more than if you only step in and out it was worth it to sit and... More

My wife and I got lucky to get married in the Capilla Rosario just some weeks ago. I haven't been there before and I was speechles at the beginning when I entered this place. Full of gold this looks like a chamber of a pirate treasure. So many nice details in the designs. Additionally to that you'll find some very... More

This is a beautiful architecture inside the chapel that when you see it one is mesmerized by its beauty, the detail put on its construction and its decoration is unique. When visiting make sure you have a tour guide or some knowledge about its history.

The Capilla Del Rosario is within the Templo de Santa Domingo. It's walls and ceiling are decorated with impressive wood work. Certainly unique in its form and size.

I visited Rosary with my friends on 12th October 2016. I was mesmerised with the grandeur of the place. It is not only magnificent but has the historic importance also. One of the best experience here was the peace and tranquillity which I enjoyed. I sat down for half an hour on the bench inside the Rosary and prayed. I... More
