  • Worth walking up the hill and having a chat with the vendors on the way. But the really interesting stuff in chalula is underground 
  • In previous days I was visiting Mexico and we passed by Cholula, the Holy City, with a set of several churches. That most caught my attention is the Church to this enn a hill (built on the base of a pyramid), Church of our Lady of los Remedios, church with beautiful architecture, excellent view of the city from the Summit. It is worth getting to know this city is located near the city of Mexico.

  • 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
