Church of Nuestra Senora de los Remedios



Address:

14 poniente between 5 norte and 6 sur
Cholula, Mexico

Description:

The Church of Our Lady of Remedies was built on top of the Great Quetzalcoatl's Pyramid in 1575.  Its style is neoclassic decorated with 24 carat gold sheets. The paintings inside the church were made by Alfonso de Villasana in 1595 and describe the history of the Lady of Remedies.
When you're inside the church go behind the main altar to visit one of the most beautiful decorated rooms you'll ever see. This is where they keep the Virgin's clothes and some other treasures.
All around the building is a large porch where you can admire the city, the archeological site, an amazing view of the volcanoes, and if you're lucky a little bit of Puebla.
