Mexico 9: Intro to Puebla and Coatepec

Mexico  9: Intro to Puebla and Coatepec

Puebla, built in 1532, is one of the oldest European settlements in Latin America, and is known as the "City of Ninety-Nine Churches." Examples include the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, completed in 1649, which has the tallest bell towers in Mexico, and is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the country. Santo Domingo Church is known for its baroque alters and was originally part of a Dominican monastery completed in 1611. Also we learn of Talavera Pottery, which is famous among Mexican crafts. These colorful ceramic tiles and artifacts with strong Moorish influence are a type of majolica earthenware still manufactured with the same techniques as in the 16th century. Coatepec, in the heart of Mexico's coffee region, has the flavor of Old Mexico and is home to the neoclassical style church Virgin Lady of Guadelupe. Then we visit Posada Coatepec Hotel, one of the most charming haciendas in Mexico, with peaceful gardens, original paintings and tiled rooms decorated with antiques, which offer history with a warm welcome. 04/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
