Two nights in Puebla City

I planned a two night trip from Mexico City to Puebla City, located 2 hours south of Mexico City, via bus. I arrived at noon, ubered 3 miles to my Airbnb, dropped my bags and went out to explore. I prepared a Google map route of some of the highlights to visit: Catedral de Puebla, Alley of the Frogs (This is the area I had a late lunch), Biblioteca Palafoxia (the oldest library in the Americas), Parian Market, the Artists’ Quarter, Church of San Cristobal, and Calle de dulces (a street dedicated to sweets).

The well known traditional Mexican dish, mole poblano, was created in Puebla. 

Pueblo’s historic center is a UNESCO world heritage site.  Cinco de Mayo originates here. It celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War,  also known as the Battle of Puebla Day.

I really enjoyed myself today! I reserved a spot tomorrow with an Airbnb experience to go bike riding and tasting different foods.
