Religious, Spiritual sights in Puebla
- Sort by:
Puebla’s superbly impressive cathedral, whose image appears on Mexico’s 500-peso bill, occupies the entire block south of the zócalo. It blends early baroque and severe Herreresque-renaissance styles. Construction began in 1550 but most of it took place under Bishop Juan de Palafox in the 1640s. At 69m the towers are Mexico’s highest. Inside, the dazzling interior, the frescoes and elaborately decorated side chapels are all awesome and most have bilingual signs explaining their history and significance.
