Where to Go / What to Do in Cholula

In addition to visiting the wonderful buried ruins, on the surface you can notice that the Historic Center of the colonial construction is dominated by Catholic temples and buildings, due to the desire and effort of the Spanish conquerors to erase the pagan past of the city's natives. Thus you can visit the Church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, imposing yellow colored temple that will grab your attention for being precisely located on top of the ancient Great Pyramid; the Convent of San Gabriel and the Franciscan church of San Gabriel, this last constructed on top of the Quetzalcoatl Temple; the Parish of San Pedro, the Chapel of Tercera Orden and the Royal Chapel, all wonderfully designed and constructed; constituting only a very small portion of the total 365 churches said to exist in the city.
