Consider this a must when visiting Puebla. Even better than fancy and shiny gold,a proof on the merge of two cultures could be witnessed and would replace the perspective on how traditional colonial architecture is all about Puebla art tourism. Flowers, fruits and plumes would...More

This church is a must-see! Carlos Rivero was our guide at this church and several other Puebla/Cholula sites and really brought home information about the history of this church and its incredible art. Fascinating!

After visiting Cholula you must go see the Virgin de Guadalupe. Because of the history of Cholula, the Virgin is a must see.
