Puebla is a very artistic, hip city slightly south of Mexico City. It is a fun, modern place to be. Though it is updated, the old side of town features antique Spanish architecture still entwined perfectly within the new.
Our hotel, the Puebla de Antano Hotel, was a beautiful, five-star, classy place. The Spanish architecture of the building featured a glass ceiling falling gently over the beautiful artwork and newly-painted walls. When it rained, they called this ceiling a “waterfall” as liquid gently cascaded down it like a waterfall.
Just outside of Puebla was the Great Pyramid of Cholula! Cholula is marked in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest pyramid to exist in the world. It is also marked as the largest monument constructed anywhere. What is left of the structure doesn’t seem like much now, but that’s because a large hill has formed over it after centuries had passed, and the Spanish built a cathedral on top of the hill. So, it looks like a large cathedral on a hill, but you’d be surprised to find that the pyramid still exists beneath it. Tunnels under the interior of the hill hide in a maze for you to play in. Tourists can visit parts of the tunnels within the hill, and it is absolutely worth it to do so.
