Although the construction of the vault, as it is in our days was made in 1773, by Bishop Francisco Fabián y Fuero, who ordered the first two floors of the bookshelf to be erected, which is a fine work of the New Spain cabinetmakers They worked harmoniously the woods of ayacahuite, polocote and cedar. From this period dates the delicate altarpiece where the effigy of the Madonna of Trapani is located, oil that is presumed to be made taking as a model the sculpture that Nino Pisano made of the Virgin in the 14th century.

Me and my boyfriend decided to do this tour because we've heard wonderful things about Puebla and Cholula. However, it was much better than expected! Our guide, Luiz, was very polite and called our hotel reception to tell he'd be a few minutes late, and met us at the lobby. His car was comfortable and clean, with air conditioning. The trip to Puebla and Cholula is amazing, with beautiful landscapes and views to the MX volcanoes. Cholula was our first top and we were lucky enough to go there when they were having a religious festivity. The guide took us to the ruins, then the church and to really see the city. He spoke partly in Spanish, partly in English (we spoke Spanish, so it was just fine). Puebla was also an amazing place, we got to really see the oldest library in the country and the churches, all spectacular! I really recommend it, and would like to thank Luiz for being so kind, informative, full of knowledge and a great driver!
Great tour. We had an excellent driver Luis and guide Brenda. Brenda's knowledge of the history of Mexico was excellent and she was able to describe the architecture and age of the churches etc very well. As it was a private tour we also had the flexibility of the timing at each historical site and the choice of sites. In summary a really good tour formed by two very nice people.
