capital to a lush green, water-filled world where the constant are towns that preserve the flavor of yesteryear and the most fascinating corners of the sierra.

You will encounter wonders that you never imagined when walking and observing a city calmly. Puebla is undoubtedly already immersed in the rhythm of a megalopolis, but walking around its historic center willing to enjoy every detail is a unique experience.
