Carnival in Puebla take place in the old neighborhoods and also in Downtown. The origin of the celebration goes back to the strong presence of native Nahua groups in the city since the beginning of the construction of Puebla by them. The natives working in the city and living next to the Spanish ruling caste of Puebla were segregated, so they made their own the Carnival celebrations, making fun of the high class by wearing clothes and masks satirizing high society.
