Overlooking the main square in the World Heritage-listed Puebla, Catedral Basilica de Puebla dominates its surroundings. Although construction of this church began as early as 1575, the structure wasn't completely finished until the late 17th century. Admire the imposing structure, known for its two uneven towers, the tallest in Mexico. Boasting a mix of Renaissance and Baroque styles, the church features fourteen lavishly decorated chapels.

  • The Most Beautiful Cathedral I have ever Seen. It has the Most Magnificent Octogonal Alter. Sunday Mass began with Awesome Gran Organs. Spectacular to Watch the Large Bells in Towers being rung. Such a Wonderful Experience.
  • Ideal for a nice walk, along or with somebody. Surrounded by nice places to eat and drink.
