Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I think my favorite part of it is the outside facade which I found stunning. Inside is also attractive. A quick and easy and very worthwhile stop.

Excellent experience especially being catholic.
The church was very ornate and fascinating- the Spaniards who came here were definitely conquistadors bringing their vision of catholicism.
Interesting church to say the least

Just a block or so from the Cathedral you will find this smaller church which has some character and atmosphere and worth a look.The congregation of Felipe Neri dates back to 1667 and this church started in 1773 and was completed in 1773.

Is a beautiful church but not the bigger or more important in Oaxaca. If you are in Oaxaca, is worth the visit.

Whatever your religion (or lack thereof), spending a few minutes in a pew at this magnificent church is a positive experience.

Hearing that this was the most decorated church in Mexico my expectations were high... and not high enough! The meticulous details overlayed in gold puts this on par for the nicest cathedrals in Europe.

This is the plaza where wedding celebrations take place, just outside the church, all weekend. There are bands, traditional dancers and happy people. Lots of fun to watch

The photograph that appears at the beggining of this site is NOT that of San Felipe Nri, but rather the frot of the church of Santo Domingo, both in downtown Oaxaca. Whereas Santo Domingo is a huge landmark becae of its historical and aesthetic merits, San Felipe Neri is a more normal church where locals go to mass and for "ordinary" ceremonies like wedings and baptism. Yet, this is not an ordinary church. Its facade is richly sculptured on the typical local gren stone, and its main altar inside shows the baroque splendor of gilded wood, painting and sculpture of the period. As in any other church, if visitors come for cultural reasons, it is recommended that most respect is shown for people attending for spiritual and religious motives. Dont miss visiting this beautiful church, it is only two or hree blocks from the main square (zocalo).
