  • A church on top of a pyramid. Steep uphill, souvenirs, great view over Puebla. It's worth it. Surroundings in Cholula with a lot to do. 
  • The Temple of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios is built on the great pyramid and for hundreds of years has been considered as a sacred place to which in our days even pilgrims thousands of people since pre-Hispanic times you could say the only thing changed queh is the reason for the cult.

  • Simple but striking. You can take photos inside. The decoration is very Baroque. The exteriors are nice.

  • 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.
  • Hermoso
  • Amazing archaeological combo... a historic church atop an ancient pyramid.
