Puebla's Zocalo - Mexico's Beautiful Culture

Puebla's Zocalo - Mexico's Beautiful Culture

Welcome to the Zocalo:  Puebla's Beautiful Heart

Art. History. Beauty. The Zocalo, the main square in the city of Puebla, Mexico, is the site of stunning architecture, dramatic lighting, and the unexpected delight of al fresco performances.
 
Here, this acting troupe re-enacts the early history of Puebla's aristocracy. 
Puebla itself dates from 1531.  Originally settled by indigenous cultures, it has been overtaken by the Spaniards and French over the centuries.  Today, it is an extraordinary blend of Mexican, Spanish and European cultures, blending into something entirely unique.
It is, of course, the home of true Talavera pottery, and is an internationally-known source for the indigenous artistry, clay, paint and glazing minerals used to create this award-winning work.
 
From the authentic Mexican pottery, to the music, vibrant art, culture and architecture, Puebla is a jewel in Mexico's cultural crown.
