Once you reach the downtown area of Puebla, you will understand the historical and artistic relevance of the City of Angels. According to local legend, the city is guarded by angels from the bell tower of the cathedral. From any corner of the city, you can see one of the five volcanoes that have been guardians of their treasures since pre-Columbian times: Popocatépetl, Iztlaccíhuatl, Malintzin, Cuexcomate and Chitlatépetl.

STROLL THE DOWNTOWN STREETS 
Discover more than two thousand seven hundred civil and religious monuments behind extraordinary facades, gardens and balconies. They have been steadily added to the landscape over the years. Visit the Palafoxiana Library, the Casa de Alfeñique Museum, City Hall and the Amparo Regional Museum, all of which are considered to be must-see destinations in the city.

VISIT THE NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LA INMACULADA CONCEPCIÓN CATHEDRAL
It took more than two centuries to be built and is filled with artistic jewels. It is protected by the tallest towers in the American colonies of its time. Be amazed gaze upon the dome, which was painted by Cristóbal de Villalpando in 1688.

TASTE WORLD-RENOWNED GASTRONOMY
Enjoy some of the famous dishes from Puebla that have become patriotic symbols, the mole and the chiles en nogada. For dessert, stroll along the Calle de los Dulces (Sweets Street), where you will encounter more traditional desserts than you could possibly imagine.
