Located just west of Puebla, Cholula is a pre-Hispanic ceremonial center that once contained about 400 shrines and temples, most of which were destroyed by Cortes's army and replaced with colonial churches - the Spanish claimed to have constructed 365 here. The Pyramid of Tepanapa has the largest base of any pyramid in the world and is the most striking feature of the archaeological site.

The plaza in the town center features three churches, the most unusual being the Capilla Real (Royal Chapel), which, with its 49 domes, has the appearance of a mosque.
