Puebla: Pretty Mexican City

Puebla: Pretty Mexican City

Say hello to Puebla!

Puebla is one of Mexico’s most historic cities and is a World Heritage Site. It’s a city southwest of Mexico City known for its food, history and architecture. The downtown city of Puebla is beautiful. Walking around downtown is very pleasant; there are shops, restaurants, etc.

Catedral de Puebla

The  Catedral de Puebla is the main church, and IT. IS. ENORMOUS. It’s Renaissance-era, and was so large that it was hard to photograph and I had to break it up into several pictures.

This church is a site to behold both inside and out. Check out their world-famous organ (not pictured) and the stunning architecture of this grand church.

Also to note is Parque Paseo Bravo where you can stroll along taco stands and buy freshly pressed vegetable and fruit juice for less than 50 cents. Don’t miss the El Reloj monument next to the large church here.

Fountain in Parque Paseo Bravo

While walking through the park there was this gorgeous fountain and I just had to photograph it. You find the most amazing treasures when you’re traveling.

Stroll from one end of the park to the other on a sunny day. It’s very relaxing. There are people selling food that you can buy and snack on.  Make sure you make it all the way to the other side of the park where you’ll fine the Iglesia de Santo Domingo.

There are obviously more things to see and do in Puebla than what I’ve shown and my post doesn’t do this city justice at the moment, but these are the highlights. It’s a beautiful town and if you can go, then go and check it out.

Thanks for reading!
