If you’re an experienced traveler who loves history and learning about other cultures this is the tour for you!  Visit five of Cholula’s most important locations in the company of an archaeologist: the Church of the Virgin of the Remedies (the famous church built on top of the pyramid), the archaeological museum, the local cemetery, the archaeological site (pyramids), and the Saint Gabriel Complex (the oldest Spanish building in the city).

The meeting spot is right in front of the Cholula train station.  The first stop on the walking tour is the  Iglesia de los Remedios, the famous church built on top of the pyramid.  After visiting the church and hearing all its stories and legends you will enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Cholula, Puebla, and the volcanos.  From there we will visit the archaeological museum where you will learn all about the Great Pyramid and Prehispanic Cholula.  Then we will walk around the pyramid and take a quick detour to visit the local cemetery.  The next stop is the archaeological site which consists of an open ceremonial center with several pyramids and ruins.  Here you will learn about the site’s construction and religious importance.  From there we will take our final walk down to the San Gabriel Complex in downtown San Pedro Cholula.  We will see the main church, the Royal Chapel, and the Franciscan Convent and you will learn about the Colonial history of Cholula.  During the entire tour I will provide specialized and detailed information you won’t find anywhere else that will allow you to really immerse yourself in the amazing wonders of Cholula’s Prehispanic and Colonial past.  Our walking tour ends at the Zocalo of San Pedro Cholula.

The tour includes tickets to the archaeological site and museum.
