Historic Spanish Colonial Cathedral of Puebla Mexico
Photograph - Photo
In most of the decent sized cities I've visited in Mexico, there's a lovingly maintained Cathedral inhabiting the Zocalo, or main plaza of the city. In Puebla, it was no different. I was in Puebla less than 24 hours, but the beautiful cathedral was literally a block away and I found my way there as soon as I saw the massive bell towers standing above the skyline. Aren't those bell towers amazingly tall?
The church was begun in the 16th century and finished in the 17th, and is a beautiful example of the baroque influence in Spanish Colonial architecture. I definitely look at this rambling church and have no question that it must be from the streets of a Mexican City, you know?
I was on a timeline during this particular visit to Mexico, but it was a stop in Peubla that convinced me I must see more of the beautiful colonial architecture of this town some day.
