Full description
After pickup from the lobby of your hotel, head straight to the historical center of the city. Your first stop is Palafoxiana Library, the first public library in the Americas, the ornate building that houses more than 45,000 books and manuscripts dating back to 1493. Afterwards, you’ll continue through the historical center, viewing cathedrals, the Rosary’s Chapel, and the Zocalo.  Continuing onwards, you’ll enjoy a tasting of locally produced liquors and candies, before heading to the bohemian artist’s neighborhood. Afterwards, amble through the El Parián marketplace, viewing traditional handicrafts produced by local artisans, and the Alley of the Frogs, a bustling avenue filled with vendors and technicolor buildings. The tour continues with a visit to the secret tunnels of Xanenetla, built by the Mexican army in the 19th century, and only recently unearthed. Your tour concludes with a visit to panoramic viewpoint at the Fortress of May 5th, after which you’ll be driven back to your accommodation, or any other point in Puebla.
