It's the largest pyramid by volume, but I feel like walking up a hill. The narrow tunnels (entrance fee) are interesting and 360 view from top. Don't compare it with Egypt pyramid otherwise disappointed.

We have visited the Pyramid of Cholula many times and it is always a pleasure to go to the top. The pyramid itself is not excavated, so it looks more like a small hill. Anyhow from it's volume it is the biggest pyramid in the...More

Beautiful place. Green grass, full beautiful trees and colorful flowers to compliment Cholulas colorful city. The pyramid is incredibly large, and still so much of it is uncovered. 450 meters each side at the base & 66 meters tall. On the top of the hill...More

If you're in Puebla you must take some time to visit the pyramid of Cholula. In addition to the historical significance, you can get some great views from the top of the hill.

This is not your average pyramid, but it's still worth a visit. The view looks more like a regular mountain with a structure at its peak. There is a beautiful museum right next to this place that you should definitely visit to learn about what...More

I have heard variations on the story of whether the Spaniards knew the site was man made or not. Either way the pyramid is huge. One of the most photographed places in Mexico - the church on top with Popocatépetl in the background. Very difficult...More

No-one knows it exists. At least outside Mexico. Yet, it's the biggest (my volume) pyramid in the world. Only small portition of it has been dug from the ground because on top of the hill that covers it is a church. You can enter the...More
