Trip Planner: Mexico / Central Mexico and Gulf Coast / Puebla / San Pedro Cholula / Zona Arqueológica de Cholula
Marvel at Zona Arqueológica de Cholula, an archaeological site dating back to the Classic period. Standing 55 m (180 ft) above the surrounding land, the construction represents the largest pyramid in the whole of the Americas and was built in several stages between the 3rd century BCE and the 9th century CE. Largely abandoned when the city of Cholula suffered a drop in population, the pyramid was covered in foliage when the Spanish arrived. In 1594, colonialists built a church on top--a major Catholic pilgrimage destination that still stands today. Zona Arqueológica de Cholula is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, San Pedro Cholula Edition.

Cholula's charm as a village is an inevitable invitation to visit

THIS IS A COOL PLACE TO VISIT. GOING UP THE MOUNTAIN, OR THE PYRAMID IS A DARE. YOU REALIZE WHY IT WAS A RELIGIOUS CEREMONIAL GATHERING PLACE. THE VIEW AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID IS SIMPLY GORGEOUS. PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME GOING UP OR DOWN. THE CHURCH IS CHAPTER TWO ON THIS TRIP. VERY IMPRESSIVE. BEAUTIFUL! ONE CAN UNDERSTAND WHY ONE CANNOT BE WITHOUT THE OTHER, PURE DIVINITY.
This is the best place for visit in Puebla. Usually crowdy in Saturday and Sunday. Very neat and clean maintained by the staff. Place is very near from the airport. To visit the pyramid you required to purchase ticket of 70 peso. The church is on the top of the pyramid and the view of city from pyramid is awesome. You will find option for shopping top of the pyramid as well as beside the pyramids.
