On our way back to Mexico City we stopped in Puebla for a couple of relaxing days spent by the pool getting some much needed sun. Known as the City of Angels Puebla is one of the best examples of the influence of the Spanish on Mexican cities. The city contains 70 churches and over 1000 colonial buildings, many covered in azulejos (painted ceramic tiles), in the historic centre. The historic centre has undergone much renovation since the 1999 earthquake and was inscribed by Unesco as a world heritage site in 1987.
