    Cholula Church

    July 17, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    I sucked it up and joined a tour to visit Cholula (and Puebla - see next post).
    Its a pretty little place with really colourful buildings and this beautiful little church set on what used to be the worlds widest pyramid.
    Unfortunately, the spanish came and destroyed the pyramid and covered it with dirt and build this little church on top, so now we cannot see the pyramid and it is now too badly damaged to try and restore, but the church makes up for it.
    Inside (cannot take photos) is one of the most spectacular i have seen. Gold and white it is a sight to be seen.
    The volcanoes were covered with clouds, so i was not able to get the iconic photo seen in all the pictures.
