  • Perfect place to admire the city of puebla to walk and enjoy good company, that if. you climb and do you exercise while you climb out the heart, but it's worth, I recommend a bit of sunscreen during the tour, get a few peanuts because there is a unique area where you can give food to many squirrels that already used them and are very close. the Church pretty sure will take photos of your visit unforgettable.

  • 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!
