Owner description: This huge baroque-style cathedral dominates the town's main square and is one of Puebla's most recognizable landmarks.

Use of natural light is extraordinary for a cathedral of this age. One thing I found odd was that the candles lit by each altar are electric, not real flames.

I live in Mexico City and you get to see the biggest cathedral of the country and it's impressive, but once you know this one you are amazed as well. It's really beautiful and if you get to hear the legend of the main bell and how it got there, you will just love it more.

Try the restaurants in front of the main square they are really delicious. Hard to park though.

Love that cathedral, is magnificent, the acoustic is great.
Surrounded by the main plaza, you can spend hours there.

Right on the zocalo, the cathedral's interior is cavernous, filled with little side chapels. The organ is especially ornate.

I was happy to finally see the huge cathedral after people told me it's larger than the one in Mexico City. It didn't dissapoint! The cathedral is beautiful, with many fine details on the gates surrounding it.
