This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Great Pyramid of Cholula, Calle 11 Nte. 1005, San Pedro Cholula 72760 Mexico
It is one of the most important archaeological sites in the country, the main pyramid has the largest base in the world with 400 metres per side, beating that of the Sun Pyramid at Teotihuacan and the Cheops in Egypt.
Its name is Tlachihualtepetl, meaning handmade hill and on it is the Shrine of Our Lady of the Remedies, which was built by the Spaniards in 1594.
Its dome is covered with talavera and inside you can see a neoclassical altar and the Virgin, whose devotion spread the belief that she appeared to the Spaniards on the sad night.
Archaeologists excavated in the building about 8 km of tunnels that allow observation of the different phases and can be visited today.
Amongst the riches of this site there are 2 pre-Hispanic murals, the mural of the drinkers and the mural of the grasshoppers.
The Great Pyramid is dedicated to the god Chiconquiahuitl (of rain) who was venerated by the Olmeca-Xicalanca culture until 1300 AC
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Templo de Santa Maria Tonantzintla, Av. M. Hidalgo, San Andres Cholula 72828 Mexico
Sixteenth century temple that defines the popular baroque art par excellence. Its name originates in the Nahuatl language, and means “place of our mother”.
In the pre-Hispanic culture Tonantzin is one of the names of the goddess of corn and is associated with the protection of men.
The interpretation of its interior is an advocation to the heaven of Mary, you can see brown angels, Mexican fruits such as: papayas and even chillies; objects like plumes, and eagle knight outfits.
Another version explains that it is the representation of one of the pre-Hispanic heavens: the Tlalocan. Its construction underwent 4 important stages, one of which caused the tower to be inside the temple, a peculiar characteristic of the temple.
The objective of its creation was the evangelization of the native groups. It was declared a historical monument on November 11, 1933. Address
Duration: 40 minutes
Stop At: Templo San Francisco Acatepec, Amozoc, La Purisima San Francisco Acatepec, San Pedro Cholula 72875 Mexico
It was between 1650 and 1750 when the wonderful façade of this church was made and it is considered a masterpiece of Mexican Baroque. The main reason that makes the church of San Francisco Acatepec a great attraction is the gallantry displayed by each of the mosaics that cover it and make it look colourful.
Its fascinating multicoloured façade was designed and created only for it; you can see the 3 point mosaics in the form of a triangle up close, and this is because it required rapid construction and it was decided to put more than 2 strips of tiles in the furnace and used 3 sticks to place mosaics on top of each other, this helps to distinguish the originality of the pieces.
The interior of the church is no less important as it houses an incredible architecture, as well as being the only one in the municipality that has two rows of mirrors. The warmth of its fiscals and the people who guard the church are very pleasant and make you feel part of the community.
