Photographer's Note

A shot of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Puebla I took when I was approaching it from the back. I like the way the different colors and materials look together, especially the "cerámica de Talavera" (Talavera tiles) of the dome.

"The historic center of the city still contains much Spanish Colonial architecture and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In recent years some of the historical buildings have been restored while others, however, are in a state of disrepair.

Of all the colonial buildings, the most impressive are without any doubt the Puebla Cathedral, which was built in a mixed neoclassical style; the gold-covered Rosario Chapel, in the nearby Iglesia de Santo Domingo is a dramatic example of Mexican baroque."
