If you're in puebla, take time to visit downtown and enjoy the zocalo and the Cathedral. Every Sunday you can ejnjoy music at the Zocalo, people, and see wonderful colors around. Around the vence of the Cathedral you can see angels on top.

It is a must to visit. It has 3 organs and several chapels. The wooden doors are magnificent. The roof design is beautiful.

If you only have time for 1 church in Puebla, make it to the Rosary Chapel. It's amazing. The cathedral is interesting and inspiring and huge, like so many others in Mexico. Note that there are signs all over asking for no cameras (with or without flash); but you'll undoubtedly see a few foreign tourists disrespecting the request. Please don't... More

The cathedral is very nice from the outside, but I did not find it any different from any other cathedral in Mexico. While it is nice, there are better sights in Puebla. Go to the Rosary Chapel.

Beautiful cathedral of Puebla. This church was started in the 1500s --rich in history and the inside is worth the visit. It is located next to the zocalo.

No words! A must see when in Puebla! It is in the center of town and worth your time to see a building built so long ago.

This basilica is quite picturesque and stands out in the city of Puebla. Didn't get a chance to see the inside as time was very short unfortunately There is a resemblance to the Oaxaca Cathedral of Santo Domingo.

So, they won't let you take pictures inside, but nothing will happen to you if you do anyway, except for an angry little woman will berate you verbally. lol.

I love seeing churches when I travel. I think churches show us the history of a city. The cathedral of Puebla is no different. In a city of many churches, this one stands out. It is the largest and one of the most beautiful. It is also on the zocalo, close to many other attractions.
