Colourful streets of Puebla – Callejón de los sapos
Puebla is a big city. I never expected it that big, but it is the 4th biggest in Mexico. Situated on the way between heroic Veracruz and Mexico City, reminded me a bit of Mexico City with so many shopping centres and a lot of life.
Just the architecture in Puebla is totally different – mostly from unique Renaissance to Mexican Baroque which contributed to choosing Puebla as a World Heritage Site.
Puebla buildings in the historic centre are so lovely! Most of them are covered with colourful tiles – azulejos in Spanish, or just painted with all the possible colours as in many other Mexican towns, such as in San Cristóbal de las Casas.
Waiting for a friend, I came across this wonderful traditional street called 6 Sur and loved it! The street is nicknamed Callejón de los sapos (Street of the frogs or Frog Alley) and it is full of handcraft shops, restaurants and bars.
