Picture Postcard from Puebla: Part II. Churches

Picture Postcard from Puebla: Part II. Churches

We took so many photos in the beautiful colonial city of Puebla we couldn't fit them all into one post.

Our first post showed some of the wonderful buildings. This one is a picture postcard of some of the incredible churches in the city. The cathedral is the famous one, but there are many others.

Cholula (a city within a city) also has great churches but we will save those for one more set of postcards!

This was one of the most unusual churches.  I am not sure of it's name.  Maybe La inmaculada Concepción
