the Cathedral is beautiful and at 8:30 and 9:15 pm they offer a light show with a brief history of Puebla. The explanation is in spanish and not great but the light show is a must.

This is without question one of the loveliest cathedrals I have visited in a lifetime of travel, and certainly superior to the National Cathedral in Mexico City.

This cathedral is really something. It is huge and so gorgeous. If you visit Puebla and the city center do not miss this place. You won't regret it.

I often just walk around the outside of churches and Cathedrals but you must go inside. I spent a long time wandering around inside. It was very beautiful. Mak sure you come back at night as it really lights up

Not much from the outside but don't let that deceive you. The interior is absolutely jaw-dropping. Don't forget to look up.
