About Archaeological Zone of Cholula

The Tlachihualtépetl "handmade hill" also known as the Great Pyramid of Cholula , has a pyramidal basement that is the largest in the world, with more than 450 meters per side (four times larger than the pyramid of Giza), although It is not the highest in Mexico as it is 65 meters high. The pyramid is dedicated to the god of rain: Chiconquiahuitl.

During your visit, in addition to the ceremonial sites and the Great Pyramid, you will be able to tour the almost 280 meters of the tunnel that is inside the pyramid. To learn more, visit the Sito Museum .

In addition to the structures, it has two important murals that you cannot miss: Los Bebedores and Los Chapulines .
