Highlight

The pre-Hispanic Cholula was a great metropolis inhabited for thousands of years. Hernan Cortes thought after seeing the amount of teocallis that you could pray in a different church every day of the year. On these indigenous shrines temples were built. San Pedro Cholula today has 37 churches, something surprising for a city of its size.

In this magical town two great symbols of both cultures coexist within a walking distance: the Great Pyramid and the Franciscan Ex-convent of San Gabriel, one of the oldest convents of America.

The huge Plaza de la Concordia is the center of San Pedro. Under his lengthy portals, visitors and cholulenses drink coffee, eat and share anecdotes looking at the protective presence of the battlements of the ex-convent, real cornerstone of the urban design.

Here the town dresses for party with masks and colorful costumes to celebrate the Carnival. From here you can feel your soul vibrate with each ringing of the bells orchestra in San Pedro everything becomes every November. Nearby, in the Pyramid, Quetzalcoatl wakes to the spring.
