The original physical and space layout of the city of Puebla, founded in 1531, is conserved unaffected in its volumes and proportions. The European and American fusion could develop here, in the viceregal time, an own and unique physiognomy in its civil and religious constructions, where the combination of quarry, brick and tile gave it a characteristic stamp. The ensemble illustrates, given its great density, a sample of artistic and architectural styles ranging from the 16th century to the beginning of the 20th.
