NileGuide Expert tip:
You won't find a better place that this for souvenirs, so if you see it here, buy it. Just make sure you've seen all the stands before buying something, because this is a big market.
El Parian is the famous craft market established in 1801 in downtown Puebla.
It was originally intended to be a food market for the Conlonial residences, but eventually other markets closer to the Zocalo became more important and the governement decided to turn El Parian
into a craft market.
It's a great place to buy Talavera, Onyx and typical mexican toys and candies. If you don't want to buy anything, this is still a great place to admire mexican creativity and crafts history.
