The sacred city of Quetzalcóatl:
Cholula, Puebla

According to a legend, Cholula has 365 churches, one for every day of the year. This fact refers to the idea that after the conquest of the city by the Spaniards a Catholic temple was built on each of the pre-Hispanic adoratories as a sign of victory of true faith over ancient paganism. Although Cholula actually has 283 parishes, not counting chapels and oratories, it is known as “the city of churches” and no doubt it is.

This profusion of temples since pre-Hispanic times clarifies the fundamental role that the settlers of this important lordship had. It is not uncommon to find here the building with the highest volume made by man. The platform of Cholula is so spectacular that it is known as Tlachihualtepetl “Handmade Hill”. I invite you to accompany me through the sacred city of Cholula and travel through tunnels, the insides of this great shrine, as well as to visit two of the most beautiful churches in Mexico: San Francisco Acatepec and Santa Maria Tonanzintla. Their exuberant baroque decoration leaves more than one visitor crossing their threshold speechless.
For two hours, from Mexico City to Cholula, the snow-capped volcanoes Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl will be our companions in this unmissable visit for those who love mesoamerican and sacred art.
