Overview

You start the tour from Puebla City main plaza or “Zocalo” boarding a traditional double-decker tram. Five miles to the west of the city is the “double” town of Cholula, which brings together San Pedro and San Andres. Each of these towns has its own main square and church, but they are so close to each other that the border has been lost and they are both thought of as the same town. Your  panoramic tour starts in San Pedro Cholula at the Plaza de la Concordia, which is flanked by the Convento de San Gabriel built by Franciscans in 1549 on the site of the ruins of a temple  dedicated to Quetzalcóat.

You continue towards the Great Pyramid of Cholula, the largest in the world if we consider the basement. On the top, you will admire the Nuestra Señora de los Remedios Temple, built by the Spaniards in 1549. You continue to San Andrés Cholula, where you will stop for a moment so you can visit the beautiful parish.

You'll board again the tram and then stop at San Francisco Acatepec and Santa María Tonanzintla temples where you will admire the  Mexican baroque style. This last church was completed by the indigenous using the expressive scope of the Baroque style, they managed to capture their own universe in the plaster: dark-skinned angels, children with feathered headdress, fruit and ears of corn. There is no corner that hasn't been decorated, leaving no gaps and demonstrating a lot of love and care.

You continue the tour passing by the wizards house, and Copa de Oro cider factory, to finally stop San Pedro Cholula zocalo to visit  the local market, the Royal Chapel, San Gabriel Convent and Concordia Plaza. You have time on your own to have lunch (not included).

You'll return to Puebla at approximately 4:30pm.
