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.

Lovely Chapel near the Zocalo. Often missed by travelers, but worth a visit not as grand as the Rosary Chapel or the Main Cathedral but worth the visit.

Visitors are asked not to walk around the cathedral during religious offices , which is fair . so normal visit hours are from 10 to 11 am and from 2 to 5 pm . unfortuantely it is almost impossible to apreciate the paintings and the sculptures in the lateral chapels as they are very dark and without light at these...

I think this is the loveliest big Cathedral in all of Mexico. The design is more Italian than traditional Mexican, but nonetheless spectacular. Photography forbidden (a rule that is generally ignored).

This is one of the biggest churches I've seen, you can hear the priest clear and loud anywhere in the church when there's a mass

Inside the cathedral is beautiful, but nothing that separates it from others. A nice thing to watch is the free light-show at night (free) that highlights some historic events. Nice to check out.

Just a short drive from the hustle of Mexico City is the charming town of Puebla. This town center is really nice for walking with a large square (Zocalo) and a beautiful basilica that you do not want to miss. The main altar, I believe, is a dedication to Franciscans and the side chapel is over the top opulent. There... More
