Mariana, the first dopios to unlock the city of Puebla in Mexico, replies to Fenia’s interesting questions!
Sit back and enjoy the Mexico ride!
Fenia: How would you describe Puebla in three words?
Fenia: What is your favourite spot in town?
Mariana: My favorite spot is the Alley of Toads (Callejon de los Sapos) located downtown in Puebla, it is a kind of an alley of arts because there, you can find stores with craftsmanships and artworks, the architecture of this place is kind of colonial with every building painted with different colors, so restaurants and bars at this place are pretty unique.
Fenia: How would you describe a perfect night in Puebla?
Mariana: My perfect night would be, going to Cholula which is about 15 minutes far from downtown, there you can see at night the Church of Remedies illuminated, this place is famous because it is located on the top of a pyramid. For dinner I love this colonial-style restaurant called “Cus-Cus”, where you can eat pasta, pizza, or Mexican food. Then I would enjoy going with friends to some bars or clubs located in Camino Real street just in front of the UDLAP University, there are a lot of places with different styles and music.
Fenia: What advice would you give to travelers visiting Puebla?
Mariana: If you do not know what to visit and you are alone go to the office of Mexican tourism located at downtown and take a one day tour, there are some buses that can take you to every famous spot in Puebla or to other near cities like Cholula or to Mexico city. Furthermore, it is not expensive and there are every hour busses even at night.
Fenia: Can you tell us a secret of the city?
Mariana: If you go to Puebla you should definitely try a “Pasita” which is a shot of raisin liquor with a piece of cheese inside. There is just one place where you can drink it downtown, it’s the oldest bar of the city, dating back almost 100 years. There is a legend about this drink, concerning the amount of it you should drink. It is said that the amount depends from the number of the blocks you will be able to walk after you drink it, since it’s super strong!
