  • There is a small shop on top if you feel thirsty after the 30 min hike to the top. Great view of the city from the top. This is an unique church because it was built over a ancient pyramid.

  • 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.
  • 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!
