29. State of Puebla Map.
The State is located in the heart of Mexico. It is
the right place to experience the
history, since Puebla has been a leading
actor in many important events. This place
combines the pre-Hispanic culture, the
Palafox's heritage, the ideas of the
Revolution, and the modern expressions
of art and culture. The State of Puebla
has a natural richness, which is
characterized by its diversity: it has
mountains, desert like areas, valleys,
lakes, forests, rivers, volcanoes etc. As
a consequence, the climate also varies
and presents considerable differences
depending on the region, changing from
cold to warm and from dry to humid.
Due to this, ever since the pre-Hispanic
era, several important cultures settled in
this area and the geography was
fundamental for their development.

After the conquest, the City of Puebla was the first to be
founded in the state, on April the 16th of 1531, as a social
and human experiment, in which a group of civilians
headed by Fray Toribio de Benavente participated.The
majestic City of Puebla and other important cities were
built with the labor and art of the Indians of the area, as
well as that of enter-prising Spaniards. Therefore, the
area thrived with agriculture and cattle raising.
In what architecture concerns, churches, schools,
hospitals and homes were built, and it is here where
cultural syncretism left one of its most important
legacies; in the historical center of the City of Puebla
which was declared "Cultural Heritage of Mankind" by the
UNESCO in 1987, with more than 2600 buildings of great
value.

with some Arabic and French influences.
Among the most famous dishes may be mentioned: the “Mole
de Caderas”, made out of goat meat and various seasonings,
