We asked Mexican textile and fashion designer, Denisse Kuri , to share her favorite spots in her hometown of Puebla, Mexico's 4th largest city. Located 2 hours from Mexico City, this gorgeous colonial city charms you like a small town but it's art, history, culture, and gastronomy rival that of a big cosmopolitan city.
Here are her recommendations and tips for visiting Puebla.
Museo Amparo | Augurio | Barrio de Xonaca | Casa Besign | La Noria | Casa de los Muñecos | Casa Petra | Jazzatlán | Profetica | Capilla del Rosario
I love my neighborhood, La Paz. It has the best views of Puebla and has so many great places to eat.
