Mexico is a very religious country, and whether you are or not a believer, the uncountable churches and chapels in Puebla will take your breath away. This is what Spaniards did best: creating beautiful religious sites. In this top 10 list of Religious Sights in Puebla you will find some of the most beautiful churches in México, such as the Cathedral and the San Francisco Temple. The Capilla del Rosario is probably the most beautiful chapel in the country and is definitely the best example of the New Spain Baroque style. It is considered the Baroque Jewel of Mexico, so you can understand why you shouldn't miss it. In the list you'll also find some sites that are not necessarily churches, convents or chapels but that are important if you're into Religious art. The Museo Amparo, for example, has a very big and important New Spain's Religious art collection including a marvelous scale model of the baldachin of the Cathedral. The Loreto Fort has an unique Baroque chapel facade in Puebla, so if you're visiting the forts, you can't miss it. And finally, the reason the Dean's House is in this list is because this used to be the Cathedral's Dean residence and is really interesting to see what kind of painting he chose for his walls. You won't believe it when you see it.
