Puebla is a city located in the east-central region of Mexico known for colonial architecture, pottery, and gastronomy.
During colonial times, the city was a center of Catholic tradition. In fact, there are some 70 churches and cathedrals in the historic city center alone, with the crown jewel being the impressive Puebla Cathedral.
Many of the city’s colonial buildings are decorated with painted ceramic tiles known as Talavera tiles, which have made the city famous.
Other attractions include the Ex Convent of Santa Rosa, which houses the Museum of Folk Art, the nearby Popocatepetl volcano, the Amparo Museum, and Cabezon Hill.
