On the site you’ll find a total of seven pyramids built one on top of the other over a period of six centuries, evolving into the pyramid you see today.  Read more

Colonial Architecture

The city of Puebla is home to what are maybe Mexico’s finest examples of 17th and 18th century colonial architecture; the Spanish architectural influence is more dominant here than in any other city in Mexico. The city was officially established by the Spaniards in 1531 and rather than being built within an existing indigenous community, Puebla was designed and built from the ground up by a Spanish architect. Puebla is home to more than 70 churches, though without a doubt the most impressive is the city's imposing cathedral, with its 207-feet high towers and fabulous dome. Puebla is also home to the oldest library in the Americas, named Biblioteca Palafoxiana.  Read more

Delicious Cuisine

Puebla’s famous regional cuisine comes as a result of a blend of pre-Hispanic and Spanish cultures and is closely tied to important events in the history of Mexico. Here you can try the delicious "Chiles en Nogada", a dish created by nuns from the Angustias convent as a way to pay homage to Agustin de Iturbide after signing the declaration of Mexican independence. Other dishes you have to try include the renowned “mole poblano”, the “chalupas”, the “escamoles” and “cemitas”, which will delight even the most demanding of palates. Besides the exquisite cuisine, Puebla also features a wide range of sweets and candies with peculiar names such as "tortitas de Santa Clara", "gaznates" and "borrachitos".  Read more
