Love this historical moment. This is the birth of the Americans celebration of Mexico's independence day.... 5 DE MAYO!
Gorgeous place even if it wasn't really involved in any battle, still an interesting and informative place to visit, the tour guides are okay and you give them the money you consider fair. Worth it to look at personal items of Puebla's hero, like his glasses and sword. Good photo opportunities around too.
