Puebla Retirement Profile

Puebla is a city steeped in history, and this is obvious in its colonial churches, lovely public buildings and stately old homes. The Spanish imported their tradition of Talavera ceramics, and local artisans expanded the color palate. Visitors today admire the facades of Puebla's historic downtown, many buildings graced with colorful tiles as well as sculpted stucco ornamentation. Puebla is also known for its delicious cuisine, among the most exciting in Mexico; there are many excellent restaurants.
