This ancient indigenous capital, guarded by the Popocatépetl volcano, is in fact two cities, San Pedro and San Andrés; the seat of the largest pyramid in Mesoamerica; with almost a million cubic meters, experts say that it is bigger than that of Giza

Pre-Hispanic shrines, Mudejar arches, baroque domes, convent-fortresses and boundless indigenous creativity coexist in the spiritual and artistic explosion of what is now Cholula.
