  • It is a must-see, climbing and climbing stairs, tired, go comfortable, but worth the climb and observe all over the city and the temple. Above there are several signs which tell you the history of the temple, very interesting. icon of puebla.

  • Reaching the Church "Nuestra Señora de los Remedios" is all a crossing, I recommend first, pass through the tunnels of the pyramid, access is very cheap and if you have the opportunity of a better guide, to hire charge approximately 250 pesos for giving us a tour and explanation on the pyramid and the Church. At the end of the tour of the tunnels and the ruins which lasts approximately 2 hours, you reach the stairs up to the Church. They are a lot steps that you have to climb that I recommend you wear comfortable clothing, tennis, hat or umbrella and lots of water because the truth is very difficult ascent. Either way there are breaks where they sell water and crafts and where it can go resting of the location. At the top you find first a church very beautiful, although I do not profess Catholicism have to admit that it is a large building, inside it is not allowed to take pictures but are all amount of virgins who used to pilgrimages . The view over the pyramid towards the volcanoes Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl is amazing and is the best. There is a terrace where you can take photos of a postcard with the best view of any doubt of Cholula. Widely preferred.

  • It is an amazing place, if you are close to Puebla you must to come to CHOLULA, welcome to MÉXICO
  • 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.
  • A beautiful church that was built on top of pyramids in Cholula, Puebla.
  • 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.
