  • You are not allowed to take pictures inside. The temple is perfectly maintained. It is a jewel above the pyramid. I recommend to go early, by the Sun and have more opportunity to see the volcanoes

  • But while it is a small chapel, the spectacle of it is its location as it is located at the top of the pyramid which makes it unique in its style. The views from there are extraordinary!

  • Place is nice, the ascent is not heavy, the small but beautiful church, which unfortunately spoiled everything is people, the tenants, many policemen down to force people who sell crafts, I know that perhaps do not cover the requirements to have the correct permissions to sell, but I think there are ways and not I approve of what master had to definitely see , that when you reach the top, we take some photographs with the views of the city, we decided to enter the Church and llevamamos a couple of minutes in when to remove my phone to see the time and immediately caught my attention for "taking photographs in" something for nothing towards! That much bothered me because the as tell me not is the way however said nothing! But are classic women close to the Church and giving chest shots that normally tend to be the more sinful and engaged in disturbing and so did with a traveller but if answered them and became more relaxation to the extent that ran it the Church only for responding... as you think are good mitoteras? Take care is a tourist place and instead make the tourist exit fleeing! Take care of business tourism! It is a major source of their income!

  • This beautiful church sits atop the world's largest pyramid: one sacred site above another. Views from the exterior courtyards are stunning and well worth the long hike up the hill. Take your time on the way up: enjoy the vendors, pause to gaze out at the surrounding city, and people watch.
  • This place is so beautiful! You can see the city and even the Popocatepetl from the top. On your way there you can see the archeological site that was below the church and once you get to the building it's just breathtaking. Loved it!
  • Beautiful church and pyramid. An unbelievably steep climb so be prepared to have a major workout.
  • Amazing archaeological combo... a historic church atop an ancient pyramid.
  • Hermoso
