It's a very nice place to visit during a weekend getaway, less than a day is needed to do it. We got there early in the morning and after two to three hours we were over. The view from the top of the hill is...More

This is not your average pyramid, but it's still worth a visit. The view looks more like a regular mountain with a structure at its peak. There is a beautiful museum right next to this place that you should definitely visit to learn about what...More

I have heard variations on the story of whether the Spaniards knew the site was man made or not. Either way the pyramid is huge. One of the most photographed places in Mexico - the church on top with Popocatépetl in the background. Very difficult...More

No-one knows it exists. At least outside Mexico. Yet, it's the biggest (my volume) pyramid in the world. Only small portition of it has been dug from the ground because on top of the hill that covers it is a church. You can enter the...More

Only a small portion of the entire complex has been processed. I still highly recommend it for those interested in archaeology. It would take years to finish excavating, but what has been exposed is well worth the trip.

I took the tourist train from Puebla to the pyramid in Cholula. The end station in Cholula was right next to the base of the pyramid. From the station it was easy to navigate around the pyramid area. The views from the train were interesting...More

For both of my group study abroad trips to central Mexico, we spent our first full day in Cholula, with most of the time spent at the base and atop the pyramid. The Great Pyramid (though resembling a tree covered miniature mountain) can be seen...More

This is probably the worst tourist site I've visited in 2 months in Mexico. The entrance is now M$70 (same as Teotihuacan) to get in, good luck finding the entry to the site, nothing is marked and you need to keep walking around till you...More

It was a shame that the tunnels were closed. Much of the site is not excavated. Climb to the church if you can. It is a great view. The church is very well preserved 19th century. The. Museum is eclectic from artefacts of the era...More

The whole complex is large, with the smaller pyramids and "roads", the climb to the top of the mountain (which used to be the top of the pyramid), where the Church is. It takes some physical level to do it all. The highlight is going...More
