Discover the Best of Puebla
Visit landmark forts, impressive museums, and a legendary pyramid
Set against a stunning backdrop of mountains and volcanoes, this vibrant central Mexico city is known for its colonial buildings adorned with beautiful Talavera tiles and culinary prowess (it’s the home of mole poblano). In the Historic Centre of Puebla, tour Fort Guadalupe and Loreto, both important battlegrounds when France invaded Mexico in 1862, see the exceptional frescoes and statuesque towers of Puebla Cathedral, and check out pre-Hispanic and colonial Mexico artifacts at the Amparo Museum. You can also learn about the history of the Baroque movement at the fantastically designed International Museum of the Baroque and ride the Cableway to take in awe-inspiring panoramic views and a giant urban mural. Head just outside the city to feed giraffes and rhinos at Africam Safari® and explore the Great Pyramid of the Cholula, an Aztec temple and one of the world’s largest pyramids.
