The school is situated on a property just 9 blocks south of the Cathedral and central town square of Puebla. It is located on a "privada" street, which means it is a non-continuous street -- the foot/car traffic is less and thus the overall noise is less as well. That said, this is Mexico and noise is synonymous with every street in the country, where vendors call out selling gas, tamales and potting soil, among many other things, cars with sometimes loud mufflers may pass by, an alarm may go off randomly, the church bells ring a block away. The best idea is to embrace it and bring a set of
comfortable ear plugs if you want some peace and quiet.
Offsetting this, and bringing charm and whim into the mix is that within walking distance of the school are restaurants, convenience stores, supermarkets, cafés, produce markets, arts and crafts shops, more than 2600 historically archived and protected buildings and monuments, Talavera ceramic workshops, museums, parks, ice cream shops, bars, theaters, lucha libre freestyle Mexican wrestling arena, movie theaters, shopping malls, and the list goes on and on.
