    Museo de la Revolución Casa de los Hnos.Serdan

    by ahoerner Updated May 24, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This museum tells the story of the Serdan brothers during the mexican revolution.

    The architecture in spanish style is beautiful, with its interior balconies. And you also get to know some more of the mexican early history.

    Address: 6 Oriente 206
    Opens: 10h00 to 16h30

    Fuerte de Loreto (Loreto Fort)

    by ahoerner Updated May 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This fort is located on the former battlefield where the Battle of Puebla took place between Mexicans and Napoleon's French Army.

    Inside the fort there is a museum, with some of the history being taught and some nice paintings about the famous battle, that ended with the French defeated.

    Me at the Loreto Fort.

    Africam Safari

    by shdw100 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the outskirts of Puebla, there is an Africam Safari adventure. The bus will take you through the park to look at exotic animals and birds. It was cool, and not very expensive, around $5 USD. The sad part is that most of the people who live in Mexico cannot afford it, so it stays only in reach of the rich.

    Church Santa Maria Tonantzintla

    by ahoerner Written Jun 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This church is also located near Cholula, is perhaps the unique example of a mexican barroque church.

    Its interior is far more interesting than any other barroque church, because of the mix of aztec and catholic motives.

    For sure worth of a visit!

    Mercado El Parián

    by ahoerner Updated May 24, 2005

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Interesting local market where you can buy some typical Mexican souvenirs, Mexican chili sweets (yes!!!) and the famous Talavera Pueblana, which is a pottery style unique in Mexico.

    Definitely worth a visit...

    Cholula

    Cholula is the largest pyramid by base on Earth. When Hernan Cortez arrived on this town, he got confused with the overgrown vegetation and so ordered the construction of a beautiful church on top. Archeologist today have dugged in several tunnels to prove that this is indeed a Pyramid and not a hill.

    If you have the time, I would definitly reccommend a visit to both Cacaxtla & Xochitencatl. Both sites are near each other. Cacaxtla has dozen of colorful murals, a rarity in Meso-American archeological sites. Read more about this two archeological sights at my Estado de Tlaxcala page.

    Tlaxcala is a lovely town near Puebla. You could easily spend more than a day here so pace yourself and have a great time.
