Puebla is one of the oldest cities in Mexico. Its layout, also attributed to the angels, dates from 1532. Its good climate and strategic location soon made it the second most important city in colonial Mexico. On their way to Mexico City, the merchandise ships from the Philippines passed first through Puebla, which gradually assimilated some artistic expressions from the East. This is reflected in the beautiful vases and talavera tableware, as well as the tiles that adorn facades of churches and houses, fountains, patios and kitchens.
If a word defines Puebla, it is "baroque". Complex flavors that seduce the palate, elaborate forms that catch the eye, an irresistible mixture of legends and stories, winding streets, fountains, gardens, handicraft markets and artistic alleys and a skyline dotted with church domes. That is why it is not absurd to think that Puebla is where the angels live.
