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.

If you are feeling hungry after your visit to the churches in Cholula, go to the 5 de Mayo and Calle 3 Poniente streets, not so far from the archaeological site where you will find the OCHO30 Restaurant. While in this restaurant, you can invigorate with delicious dishes, such as pizza, steak, fish and salads, we recommend you to try La Chingona salad, we promise you will love it!
