The never-ending travelogue
The Cholula pyramid is the largest pyramid (by base size) in the world. It rises 180 feet and its base measures 1,480 x 1,480 feet. It is huge. Here is a view of Cholula from the top of the pyramid. The active volcano Popocatépetl (17,802 ft) rises in the background.
This is the Church of the Virgen de los Remideios on top of the pyramid.
The walk to the top was hard; not only was it steep, but Cholula is over 7,000 feet above sea level. For reference Denver is just over 5,200 feet above sea level. Yeah, I was having a hard time catching my breath walking up the steep walkway and stairs.
Both pictures taken by the author. Ain't cell phones wonderful? I especially like the one of the church.
