Secretos de Puebla (Puebla's Secrets)

Puebla

Los Secretos de Puebla (Puebla’s Secrets) is the tour that makes you discover an underground tunnel network that is 500 years old. One of the main entrances is located in el Barrio del Artista.

The network is divided in two sections and the tour starts in el Puente de Bubas (Buba’s bridge). Illuminated in purple hues, this passage was created to connect the city with the hospital, which served syphilis patients in the 17th century. The tunnel is illuminated with purple light and narrations about historic facts or corridos poblanos. In order to understand its history, there is a small museum on the surface, which exhibits the transformation process of the tunnel and the legends surrounding it.

The second section is located in el barrio de Xanenetla (Xanenetla’s neighborhood) acknowledged by the murals that decorate the houses. The tunnel “Pasaje Histórico del 5 de Mayo” has a length of half mile and it is believed that it could have served to transport the wealth of the Catholic Church and later as trenches in the Battle of Puebla, since it connects with the Loreto and Guadalupe forts.

In its interior, there are weapons and toys from the 19th century. After taking a walk, there is nothing left but to go out to the Concordia Lagoon, where every night the Puebla’s legends are recreated through mapping.
