Overview

An area characterised by a landscape dotted with volcanoes such as Popocatepetl and Iztacihuatl, see how the influence of talavera has shaped the architecture and handicrafts of Puebla.

Talavera is a style of majolica pottery recognizable by a milky-white glaze. Authentic Talavera pottery may only come from the city of Puebla, Atlixco, Cholula, and Tecali thanks to both the quality of the natural clay and the traditional production process. A process originally imported from Spain and integrated with native motives and iconography with blue as the main colour.

During the walking tour we discover several gems. El Parían is an arts and crafts market located by the plaza, with permanent stalls and other vendors selling their goods on blankets spread on the floor. The Chapel of the Rosario, inside the Church of Santo Domingo, is full of symbolism, images and elements of New Spain's Baroque. Finally the Cathedral that took 300 years to complete boasts the tallest bell towers in Mexico.

We also visit Cholula, whose pyramid is considered the largest in the country with each side about 400 metres long. Afterwards we continue to The Santa Maria de Tonantzintla Church where you can see the most surprising traditional work.
