The cathedral is huge. Beautiful. The art in it is great. I went back for mass which was conducted by the happiest priest I have ever seen!

We passed by the Cathedral on our way back to hotel one night and caught the light show by accident (I think it was around 8 pm on a Saturday night - check timings with the Tourist Information). We were told later by the hotel it's only on weekend nights. If you have been to the Loire chateaus in France... More

Enormous cathedral, very majestic, with an amazing interior. Only down-side. You are not supposed to take ANY pictures in the interior. But I say many people sneaking it. Not the end of the world.

Once you get to the central area of Puebla (Centro Historico) you see some great colourful building facades which are best seen during the day hours if possible. The Cathedral was worth a visit despite not being able to take photos. on the walk around you have some fabulous thing to buy so come with an empty suitcase.

I love visiting the Cathedral of Puebla for its sheer magnitud. The flying buttresses, and pipe organ are works of art. At Christmas they set up a life size nativity scene made of talavera. The entrance is free.

This monument, besides having a deep spiritual value for any Christian or Catholic from the world. Is a work of art. Very well preserved, full of history and myth! Don't forget to visit it when you go to Puebla!
