Mexico Puebla Callejon de los Sapos

The capital of the Puebla Municipality and one of Mexico’s biggest cities, Puebla’s well-preserved historic centre is home to 70 churches and a wealth of elegant colonial architecture, earning its nickname “the city of angels”. Once known as a symbol of virtue and conservatism — Puebla state remains the wealthiest Catholic diocese in Mexico — the city is currently undergoing a cultural and touristic revolution. With a dynamic art and crafts scene (the region is known for its fine Talavera ceramics), multiple universities and rich culinary heritage, Puebla easily deserves a few days of your time.
