Directions

Framed by the snow-capped volcano Popocatepet and his eternal companions Iztaccihuatl and La Malinche, the city of Puebla was established in 1531 by the Spanish Viceroyalty as Puebla de los Angeles (City of Angels). One of the first cities in The Americas, it occupied a strategic location between Mexico City and the Port of Veracruz.

Today, the vibrant metropolis allows one to travel back in time. Puebla’s historic city center (Centro Histórico)—a 100-block showcase of colonial Mexico—was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. A stroll through the storied streets is replete with attractions including finely preserved colonial architecture, one of Mexico’s most beautiful cathedrals, a bevy of churches, the oldest theater in Latin America and the must-see Zocalo, the city’s main public square. Throughout Puebla, buildings feature European design influences, architectural reminders of the town’s past and notable ornamentation, including the city’s famed Talavera ceramic tile. The city is also a food lover’s dream. Offering remarkable depth, Puebla’s cuisine is one of the most renowned in the country. Typical dishes, such as Chiles en Nogada and Mole Poblano, offer an eclectic mix of indigenous fare with French, Spanish and Arabic influences.

Rosewood Puebla is ideally situated within the historic city center near the colorful Templo de San Francisco, the first religious building erected in Puebla. Just steps from the main public square, the hotel provides exceptional access to the city’s cultural attractions, dining establishments and local entertainment.
