Puebla : Michelin's recommendations
Puebla, a network of perfectly straight streets located about 200km east of the capital, can be proud of having preserved remnants from its rich past (despite the 1999 earthquake and its severe impact) including a cathedral that rivals the one in Mexico City, a lively historic area centred around a Zócalo adorned with a beautiful central fountain, and a remarkable museum of Pre-Hispanic art. And if all the sightseeing has whetted your appetite, Puebla is also known for its culinary specialities, including its famous Mole Poblano.
