  • Whatever souvenirs from Puebla you need. You'll definitely find them here. Granted, some of them are cheesy and worthless but there are some unique ones.
  • We enjoy coming in the evenings to get some food for dinner. Always an array of street venders and the chalupas are delicious! During the day you can find market type stores selling all sorts of great things from Puebla. Great place to visit and to walk around.
  • Great for a touristy sunday walk
  • Great souvenir options. Good prices. Talavera highly recommend.
  • This place is your last stop before you go, you find a lots of things hand made from Puebla's artisans.
