DESCRIPTION

We start our tour from Puebla City main plaza or “Zocalo” boarding our traditional double-decker tram. Five miles to the west of the city is the “double” town of Cholula, which brings together San Pedro and San Andres. Each of

piramide
Concordia

these towns has its own main square and church, but they are so close to each other that the border has been lost and they are both thought of as the same town. Our panoramic tour starts in  San Pedro Cholula at the  Plaza de la Concordia, which is flanked by the Convento de San Gabriel built by Franciscans in 1549 on the site of the ruins of a temple  dedicated to Quetzalcóat. We continue towards the Great Pyramid of Cholula, the largest in the world if we consider the basement. On the top, you will admire the Nuestra Señora de los Remedios Temple, built by the Spaniards in 1549. We continue to San Andrés Cholula, where we will stop for a moment so you can visit the beautiful parish.We board again the tram and then stop at San Francisco Acatepec and Santa María Tonanzintla temples where will admire the  Mexican baroque style. This last church was completed by the indigenous using the expressive scope of the Baroque style, they managed to capture their own universe in the plaster: dark-skinned angels, children with feathered headdress, fruit and ears of corn. There is no corner that hasn't been decorated, leaving no gaps and demonstrating a lot of love and care.

We continue our tour to San Pedro Cholula, passing by the wizards house, and Copa de Oro cider factory, to finally stop  San Pedro Cholula zocalo.

Time on your own to visit the Great Pyramid,  the local market, the Royal Chapel, San Gabriel Convent and Concordia Plaza.
