The town of Cholula is near to the city of Puebla, almost a 2.5-hour drive from Mexico City and is best known for being a major cultural and historic destination in Mexico.
Cholula de Rivadavia, mostly known as San Pedro Cholula, was an important ceremonial center in Mesoamerica during the Conquest of Mexico, when Hernan Cortes and the Spaniards arrived in the country.
Cholula is very famous for its cultural background, exquisite architecture, including churches, some of them built all over ancient temples, such as the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios. The city view from this place is simply astonishing.
