NileGuide Expert tip:
Nobody knows why photographs are forbidden in here. But they are. And I'm sorry because it's a beautiful place and I'm sure you'd like to take a memory home, but if the guards catch they'll make you erase them. Crazy!
This is the Convention Center of Puebla, an enormous complex with multiple rooms and auditoriums for any kind of convention. Is was built in 1999 by the renowned mexican architect Javier Sordo Madaleno.
It was made along the restoration of many deserted textile factories, giving it its famous mix of old and new. The most important parts of the factories were maintained and through some crystal floors and some old machines you can witness how the factories worked.
But probably the most beautiful part, and the one you can't miss, are the gardens. They are a oasis of beauty in the middle of the city.
