Located about two hours outside of Mexico City, Puebla dates back to 1531. Its Centro Histórico—a 100-block historic center named a UNESCO World Heritage Site—brims with colonial-era architecture and some of Mexico’s most impressive cathedrals. Zócalo de Puebla, the city’s main square, is the perfect spot to spend an afternoon people-watching. Grab a bench near the fountain at the square’s center or tour the renowned Puebla Cathedral, whose twin towers rise 230 feet above the square. Foodies will rejoice at the town’s trendy eateries and abundant street food options—in fact, it was in Puebla that mole poblano was born, a savory sauce served over meat.
Known as one of the most important historical museums in Mexico, this museum—made up of two 17th- and 18th-century buildings—houses an impressive collection of pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern Mexican art.
The city’s vibrant main square is a charming space to spend the afternoon. Admire local artwork, nosh on local cuisine, and see the Town Hall.
About 60 miles northeast of the city, discover an under-the-radar gem: the preserved ruins of an ancient Mesoamerican city abandoned more than 1,000 years ago. The impressive site spans 4.5 square miles.
Puebla sits about 7,000 feet above sea level, but enjoys relatively mild temperatures throughout the year. The warm season lasts from March to June, with temperatures often reaching the upper 70s. In winter, temperatures drop into the low 40s but rarely go below that. The wet season typically lasts from May to October, with relatively little precipitation outside of those months.
