  • Fundamental historic site to understand the battle of May 5, in a refurbished thinking in the visitor area. The Fort of Guadalupe, museums, Planetarium and Exhibition Centre also converge in this. It has magnificent views of the city and a cable car which, though brief, is exciting. I recommend travel in it especially at dusk.

Where to stay in Puebla

Puebla's immaculately preserved historical center contains the majority of accommodations in the city, with visitors understandably wanting to stay as close as possible to the many architectural highlights on display. Head to Avenida Reforma for a great selection of boutique hotels housed in historical buildings, with plenty of budget guesthouses and hostels nestled in the surrounding streets. The neighborhood of Amor, slightly northwest of the center, offers a taste of modern Puebla with a range of business hotels.
