ARTS & CULTURE
It was an unlikely victory when the Mexicans defeated the French army in 1862. The event is celebrated on 5 May each year in Puebla, a lovely colonial city in the shadow of the Popocatépetl volcano, a 2-hour drive from Mexico City. Tens of thousands of residents participate in the spectacular parade; Mariachi bands play in the streets and there is dancing and fireworks. The festival draws over a million visitors every year.
ARTS & CULTURE
The Zócalo: once the centre of Aztec society, now the heart of Mexico City. The enormous square is where residents of this metropolis gather for cultural activities, celebrations and demonstrations. In the evening the square is a lovely place for a stroll or to enjoy a typical Mexican burrito for the cost of less than 1 euro.
With its majestic height, the Popocatepetl volcano towers over the surrounding landscape. The locals of Mexico City affectionately refer to it as 'Popo'. The volcano is a wonderful destination for walking, climbing, skiing or simply to take in the views. But make no mistake, 'Popo' is still active.
