Trip to Cholula

???????????????????????????????The city of Cholula is located in the west of the state of Puebla in central Mexico. Cholula has been declared “Pueblo Magico” (Magical Town) and is best known for its Great Pyramid buried during the Spanish colonization creating an “artificial mountain” to build a church on top “Nuestra Señora de los Remedios”.

The pyramid in its final form is approximately 400 by 400 meters (1,300 by 1,300 ft): It’s supposed to be one of the largest archeological sites. Vestiges of this pre-Hispanic era can be seen through an underground tunnel. There is also an extensive “Altar Complex” adjoining the south site of the pyramid.
