Cholula and Puebla private day trip from Mexico CityМексико, Мексика
Enjoy a fascinating journey through the past and present of Mexico on a private trip from Mexico City to two of the oldest towns in Latin America, Cholula and Puebla. Discover how the prehispanic world and the Spanish cultures merged into the great mosaic of Mexican culture and how that fusion continues to this day.
Take in the beautiful view of the volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl on your way to Cholula, the oldest inhabited town on the continent and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit the Church of Santa María Tonantzintla and the Sanctuary of the Virgen de Los Remedios built on Tlachihualtepetl or the Great Pyramid.
This pyramid is the largest in the world. It was a major center of worship and trade until the Spanish conquest when a church was built on top of it. From there, you'll get to Santa María Tonantzintla, a temple of indigenous baroque style where you can appreciate the fusion of indigenous cultures with the Catholic religion.
The journey continues to Puebla, one of the oldest towns on the continent. After lunch, take a walk and admire the cathedral, an architectural jewel, see the Rosario chapel and browse the stalls of the colorful Parian market, one of the oldest in the country, where you can find typical handicrafts from the region.
