Puebla: A Sweet and Easy Day Trip from Mexico City

Everyone knows that Mexico City is a must-see when traveling to Mexico. Due to the huge cultural offering, from world-class cuisine to renown architecture and innovative art, Mexico City is the place to go. If you're ever looking to get to know a little bit more of Mexico, perhaps a smaller, more traditional city, you should definitely make a side trip to the beautiful town of Puebla.

Here are a few places that are a must-see for any first time visitor:

Museo Amparo (Displays of pre-Hispanic, colonial and contemporary Mexican Art in grand colonial buildings)
Museo de la Revolución (Houses revolutionary materials and is located on Avenida 6 Norte, #206)
Museo Casa del Alfeñique (Showcases religious art in a period setting and is located on Avenida 4 Oriente # 416)
Puebla Cathedral (Dedicated to the Immaculate Conception and claimed to be one of Mexico’s largest)
Callejón de los Sapos (An alley lined with antique shops that becomes a flea market on Sundays. Located south of Avenida 5 Oriente, on Calle 6 Sur)
