PUEBLA

MUSEUMS

-Bello Museum: Its 15 rooms exhibit important painting collections, religious objects coming from the convents shut during the government of the Reform (1855-1861), artworks of European origins, local handicraft, and several samples of Talavera glazed tiles and slabs from Puebla.
Its name evokes José Luis Bello y Gonzales, a philanthropist who donated his XIX century mansion and his exquisite art collection, which included canvases of renowned masters such as El Greco, Miguel Cabrera and Francisco Morales, to the City.
It is located on 412, 4 Oriente Street, it the Historic Centre.

-Regional Museum or Alfeñique House: Several codices, blue prints, and photographs that constitute part of Puebla's historic and documentary memory, stand out amongst its cultural treasures. Besides, there is a collection of old clothes used by the City's old settlers on exhibition.
It was inaugurated in 1926, choosing a big old house from the XVIII century to be its seat. The thing is that the house has a façade with profuse decoration, brick and glazed tile coverings, and fulsome white plaster adornments that resemble the sweet nougats from Puebla, called alfeñiques. That is where its name comes from.
It is located on 412, 4 Oriente Street, in the Historic Centre.

    -Amparo Museum: Inaugurated in 1991, it is considered one of the most important in Latin America, due to the enviable state of the art multimedia technology in use and to its innovative museum concepts.
    Monoliths, masks, god figures, and diverse tools of Zapoteca, Totonaca, Maya and Olmeca origins, amongst other pre-Hispanic Cultures, are exhibited in its rooms. It also keeps attractive collections of the colonial period, with several canvases, religious images, and a fine suite standing out.
    The Amparo Foundation, created in 1979 by Manuel Espinosa Iglesias in honour of his late wife, Amparo Rugarcía de Espinosa, drew the project for the creation of the Museum. Those responsible for this commendable task chose the colonial compound called The Hospitalario, integrated by the XVI century Hospital of Our Lady and San Juan of Letrán and a beautiful big house of the XVIII century, as its seat.
    The colonial facilities were refurbished to become the warm exhibition rooms of the Museum, located on 708, 2 Sur Street.

    -Museum of Colonial Art: It treasures a collection of religious canvases of colonial origins that, due to its vastness and importance, is one of the most complete in Mexico. But that is not all; its rooms also meddle with the past to show visitors a series of curious and interesting objects related to medical science.
    The strange thematic proposal, a mixture of sacred art and scientific objects, is justified because the centenarian building that today houses the religious canvases along with the tools used by medical science devotees, was the main hospital in Puebla during the colonial period.
    The Hospital of San Pedro was founded in 1545, although the construction of its building was finished in the XVII century only. It is a magnificent edifice that occupies an area of more than 5000 square metres. Its original façade presents a mantle of bricks and the coat of arms of the Cathedral, while its vaults and curved domes stand out on its interior. The beautiful archways of its patio, one of the largest in the City, are also amazing.
    The Church of San Pedro, which presents a sober classical style on its façade, was built beside the Hospital. The Museum is located on 203, 4 Norte Street, in the Historic Centre.
