Temple of the Holy Spirit

Built by the Society of Jesus in the mid 1700s, it is the resting place of Catarina de San Juan, who is popularly known as the “China Poblana,” and is the inspiration of Puebla’s regional dress. With a pristine white exterior and a big entrance framed in stone, it’s a beautiful church during the day, and at night it’s covered in lights to make the facade even more impressive. Inside, there are large sculptures and marble details and furniture that make up an exquisite decoration.
