Mexico 10: Puebla

Mexico 10: Puebla

Five hundred years ago Franciscan monks founded this "City of Angels." It has also been called the city of 99 churches because of the many places of worship within this charming city. One of the most impressive of the many churches is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, which took more than 7 decades to complete and houses a 16th century Baroque organ with 88 pipes. Puebla is also known for its pottery and tile industry, and we visit Uriarte, the oldest certified continuously operating workshop in the city. Founded in 1824 by Dimas Uriarte, this workshop continues to create Talavera Poblana, a type of majolica pottery with milk-white glaze originally decorated with a cobalt blue pigment. Other colors are now used as well, but the pottery is still made in the traditional method and using the same techniques as those of the founder. From the Uriarte Workshop we stroll to the Artists' Neighborhood, a serene location for the studios of local artists and a wonderful place for tourists to visit. Next we travel a few miles outside of Puebla to Cholula, where we see a Spanish-style church built on top of an ancient Indian pyramid. Nearby is a museum to learn more about both structures. No visit to Puebla would be complete without learning about its world-famous cuisine, where traditional dishes are flavored with different types of chilies. These are authentic Mexican dishes that will satisfy even the toughest hombre! 04/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
