Puebla is located in the Puebla Valley, around 70 miles (113 km) southeast of Mexico City. It is the fourth largest city in Mexico (metro population is about 2.1 million).

Puebla is known for its well-preserved historic center, Zócalo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing beautiful colonial architecture

It is also known as the home of the spicy thick, mole, and is considered one of the culinary centers of Mexico.

Perhaps the city’s main claim to fame is its role in Cinco de Mayo, a festival commemorating the May 5, 1862 defeat of a French expeditionary army by Mexican general Ignacio Zaragoza.

Puebla enjoys a scenic setting, surrounded by volcanoes and snow-capped mountains.

Overall Atmosphere: Cultural

Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.
