  • Cholula is worldwide known because, supposedly, there are 365 domes in the city, one for each day of the year. So if we're talking about Religious Sights, this is the right place to come. But this doesn't mean you have to be a believer to enjoy them, the beauty of these sites is the magnificent architecture and decoration the spaniards (and, in some cases the indians themselves) left for us to enjoy.


    You never know when you might find a church, a chapel or a temple in Cholula, you might never have enough time to visit them all, so here's a top 10 list of the religious sites you can't miss in this city.


    We'll start with the most beautiful and magical building in this city, probably one of the most beautiful churches in the country, and surely an unique one. Tonanzintla was created by indians hands to be their church, this is why the faces and forms of the angels and saints are so basics, and that is probably what makes them so beautiful.


    Nuestra SeƱora de los Remedios is another unique church in Mexico, since it's set atop of the Great Pyramid of Cholula. The sight of the city and the volcanos is unbelievable from there, and the church is beautiful on the inside. The steps to get there may seem like a lot of work, but the truth is that with each step you'll discover a new view, and when you least expect it, you'll be on the top.
    The Capilla Real is another jewel of Cholula, words cannot even begin to describe the feeling you get when you enter. Is amazing!


    Every single church in this list is a wonderful secret waiting for you to discover it. And if you happen to be walking around and find a church that's not on this list, go inside anyway, 10 spots are not enough to choose the most beautiful religious buildings in Cholula! They all should be in here!
