The Basics

The Estrella de Puebla is the dramatic centerpiece of the Parque Lineal complex, which includes the Art Garden (Jardín de Arte), the Metropolitan Ecopark (Eco Parque Metropolitano), and the Atoyac River Walk (Paseo del Río Atoyac). Most visitors reach and ride the observation wheel independently either before or after walking the 2.8 mile (4.5 kilometer) Parque Lineal path. You can’t prebook, but queues tend to move quickly on the day, with each rotation taking just 20 minutes.

Designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito and inaugurated in 2016, the sinuous-looking International Baroque Museum is dedicated to preserving, researching, and sharing all things baroque.
