What you can expect
Delve into Puebla’s pre-Hispanic history and colonial past with a cultural and architectural tour of its fascinating churches, ancient archaeological sites, and charming, UNESCO-designated center.
This intriguing mix of pre-Hispanic elements and Christian culture is even more apparent at Cholula, where a Catholic church is perched on top of a pre-Columbian Teotihuacan pyramid.
From Cholula, head into colonial Puebla. Known as “The City of Angels,” Puebla’s cosmopolitan vibe and traditional flavor earned it a nod from UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Stop for lunch at your leisure Puebla is the birthplace of the emblematic Mexican dish, mole. Then stroll the historic center to scope out the beautiful talavera tiles and frescoes that ornament the city’s buildings and façades.
Listen to the legends behind Puebla’s austere cathedral’s soaring bell tower it’s said that angels raised the 18,000 pound (8,100 kg) bell to the top of the lofty belfry. Then step into the gilded stucco and onyx stonework of the Rosary Chapel at Santo Domingo. It’s a dazzling conclusion to your day in Puebla.
