  • It is a church that was erected on the basis of the pyramid of Cholula, it was to erase any pre-Hispanic vestige, it is a church of the sixteenth century and is said to have been built when Brother Cortés suffered a setback in the famous NIGHT TRISTE. He is now 425 years old and the festival is celebrated in October of each year. It is recommended to have very good physical condition to climb up to the church because they are about 40m high on very steep stairs. To top it off, in the background you can see the Popocateptl and the Iztacihuatl on a clear day. It's an inevitable place not to know him if you come to Puebla.
