“El Parián is Puebla’s largest and only traditional handcraft market. It is one of the most-visited tourist attractions of the city. The buildings originally were always a market, called El Parian, which opened in 1760 and operated until the end of the 19th century. By 1801, it was a major stop and market for caravans bringing goods from Veracruz, Oaxaca, La Costa Chica of Guerrero and Mexico City. Its demise came with the construction of the railroads, devolving into a flea market and market for cheap goods.”
