Full description
Start your 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. This 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. Continue towards the Great Pyramid of Cholula, the largest in the world if you count it's basement. At the top, you will admire the Nuestra Señora de los Remedios Temple, built by the Spaniards in 1549. Continue to San Andrés Cholula, where you will stop for a moment so you can visit the beautiful parish. Re-board the tram and stop at the San Francisco Acatepec and Santa María Tonanzintla Temples to admire their Mexican Baroque-style. Continue to San Pedro Cholula, passing by the wizards house, and Copa de Oro cider factory, to finally stop at San Pedro Cholula Zocalo  to visit the Great Pyramid,  the local market, the Royal Chapel, San Gabriel Convent and Concordia Plaza. Enjoy time on your own to have a look around before returing to Puebla around 4.30 pm.
