Day 1 - Puebla


Ok. Maybe you'll have to get a little wet. but believe me it'll be worth it!
We'll start at the Cathedral. Go inside and enjoy the beautiful work of art this Baroque building is. Don't miss any chapel, they're all beautiful.The main altar is breathtaking and the paintings on the walls are also a must see.
After that, you can go out to the portico and go to the street on your left hand side, (the opposite from the Zocalo). Go into the Casa de la Cultura and go upstairs. In front of you you’ll find the Palafoxiana Library. This is the oldest Library in America and has over 42,000 books, some of them are more than 400 years old. This Baroque space is unique in the world, and you can’t miss it.
On the back part of the Casa de la Cultura, the Erasto Cortes Museum is a small space dedicated to photography, engraving and drawing. They usually have really interesting temporary expositions you can check out.
After that go to the Amparo Museum. This is a big museum so you’ll have plenty to do there. You can choose from the pre-Hispanic, the Colonial or the Contemporary exhibitions. This is the most important museum in Puebla, so whatever you chose will be the right answer. If you chose to see them all, be sure to take a break before going into the Contemporary Art exhibition.
By now it should probably be around 6 or 7 pm. I’m sure you’re tired but you don’t want to go to the hotel yet, is too early!
Ask a Taxi to take you to the Centro de Convenciones (it’s really close, it won’t be expensive). Next to the Centro de Convenciones the Paseo de San Francisco Mall is a new approach in malls, since it’s built in what used to be a fabric, so you’ll see a lot of glass floor to see what was below and some machinery.
There’s a movie theater in there too, so you can now relax, watch a movie (most movies in Mexico are shown in English with Spanish subtitles, so you won’t have a problem with that) and just hope tomorrow the rain will stop.
Have fun!
