Puebla is one of the five most important Spanish colonial cities in Mexico, located approximately two hours to the south east of Mexico City. It was declared a National Heritage site in 1987 and today offers exquisite cuisine, a laid-back lifestyle, hidden museums and churches and an abundance of colonial architecture, especially its remarkable cathedral. It can be visited alongside the colonial town of Cholula, one of the oldest recorded cities in Mexico. It boasts a huge number of churches and the largest man-made pyramid in the new world. Both towns are overlooked by the towering Popocatépetl Volcano.
