Puebla
  Capital: Puebla
State Population:
4,624,239

Description:
The state of Puebla is located to the south east of Mexico City. Puebla is a fairly densely populated state with a rich history.

At the time of the arrival of the Spanish in the early 1500's, the area of Puebla was a major population center for the Aztec people. The Spanish conquerers violently overtook the city, and then erected churches with materials from the surrounding Aztec temples. The combinations of Indian temples and Spanish colonial architecturethroughout the state makes for some interesting site seeing.

Puebla is also known for its moles - which are complex sauces made from chilies, chocolate, and other exotic spices.
