While the world's biggest pyramids are often thought to lie in Egypt, Cholula's Great Pyramid is actually the largest man-made pyramid in all the world.
Constructed more than 2,000 years ago, this structure, often referred to as the Pyramid of Tepanapa, was long mistaken for a hill. Much of the surprisingly well-preserved structure is actually buried beneath the earth and surrounded by dense grasses and brush that have completely overgrown its outer walls.
Moreover, there is now a large Spanish church that sits perched right at its top. Featuring design elements of both the El Tajin and the Teotihuacan civilizations, Cholula, like many other pyramids throughout the world, remains an archaeological enigma.Places nearby:
