Puebla is the capital and the largest city of the Puebla State.

It’s no secret how cool Puebla is and the best way to get to know a city is through its neighborhoods. In the neighborhoods, you will find history, gastronomy, colors, traditions, and much more. So pack everything to go on a tour to the most emblematic neighborhoods of Puebla.

Barrio Analco – Analco Neighborhood

Analco is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Puebla. It is located in the heart of the city, so it will be very easy to find it.

Its name comes from Nahuatl and means “on the other side of the river”. The neighborhood received this name thanks to the fact that the San Francisco River passed through the characteristic bridge of this neighborhood.

In this neighborhood, you can admire the beauty of an old Puebla.

Every weekend Analco neighborhood surprises with live music, typical Puebla food (from moles to delicious desserts), handicrafts, plants for home, beautiful decorations for the upcoming holidays and festivals, and many other things.

Barrio del Artista – Artist’s Quarter

As its name says, in Artist’s neighborhood, you can find all those artists worth knowing, it is mostly painters and musicians. Here you can enjoy art exhibitions, open-air plays, and different concerts.

And you can finish your sweet evening in one of the restaurants that you can find in this neighborhood, enjoy your favorite craft beer or a hot and sparkling coffee.

Ideal to spend a bohemian night full of romance, the lighting of its streets makes you lose yourself in its charm.

Barrio de la Luz – Neighborhood de la Luz

Like Analco, this neighborhood is one of the oldest in Puebla. In its streets, the practice of pottery is still latent and it is thanks to this that the neighborhood of La Luz is known.

You can visit the Parroquia de la Luz, a baroque-style church in which you can see the figures of Saint Peter and Saint Paul on its façade.

Every year there is a party for Our Lady of Light (“Nuestra Señora de la Luz”).

You can find Mexican snacks, rides, enjoy a good dance and take home the unique party bread.

Barrio del Alto – Alto Neighborhood

This neighborhood is located northeast of the city center. Nowadays it is a quiet picturesque neighborhood and you can admire the old houses.

Barrio del Alto is also known as “El Garibaldi de Puebla”, thanks to the fact that it is very easy to find mariachis, whom you can easily locate in the El Alto market in the early morning. And you can hire them for your special events.

It is one of the neighborhoods where you can learn a little more about the history of Puebla.

Callejon de Los Sapos – Alley de los Sapos

This alley got its name thanks to the fact that many years ago in times of rain the square was flooded, bringing with it a proliferation of toads. Now we know it as the Barrio de Los Sapos (“Neighborhood of Toads”).

You can see all the splendor of this neighborhood every weekend. It is a popular neighborhood where you can find many antiques and endless curiosities among its colorful streets.

Barrio Xanenetla – Xanenetla Neighborhood

This neighborhood is not so well known as the previous ones we already mentioned in this post. But let’s give this place the opportunity to surprise you.

In the Xanenetla neighborhood you can enjoy beautiful cobbled streets and its main attraction, which are a series of murals that you can find in different streets.
