Puebla is the capital of Puebla State. It is localized in the central valley surrounding by the highest volcanoes of the country. Puebla is 120 Km from Mexico City.

Puebla, established by the Spanish in 1531 on the main route between the port of Veracruz (the most important port in Mexico) and Mexico City, Puebla was the principal city of colonial Mexico. Puebla’s appearance is the most European of all the colonial cities, because it was planned from the ground up by a Spanish city designer rather than being built within an existing Indian community.
