Explore Cholula, Tonantzintla & Puebla in One Day
Enjoy a full-day tour of the most beautiful and important historical sites outside of Mexico City: Puebla, Cholula, and Tonantzintla.
You will start the tour from Mexico City, where you will cross a road with wonderful views of mountains in the background, towards the east side of the city. Admire the impressive views and the beautiful landscape of the Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes, currently active and with large amounts of ice glaciers in their cones. After this beautiful tour, we will arrive at the historic town of Cholula.
This place takes its name from the goddess Cholula, referred to as the goddess of life, light, and fertility, and therefore, the city of Quetzalcóatl was considered a sacred city. From here, we will go to Santa María de Tonantzintla, a singular church that combines two religious interpretations that coexist (the indigenous and the Christian), and is considered the most representative church of indigenous baroque art. In addition to visiting this beautiful monument, you will have the opportunity to learn even more about the history and culture of this characteristic place.
But the visit does not end here! We will visit Puebla, known for its traditional gastronomy, its colonial architecture, and its ceramics. Here, on a tour with our local guide, we will visit the Cathedral and the historic center of Puebla, in a beautiful walk that will take us to the most important and representative places of this “City of Angels“.
Before returning to Mexico City, you will be able to taste local food and visit the Parián Market and have free time to explore on your own. This is the most famous handicraft market in the City of Puebla. It has more than 112 stores decorated with brick and Talavera tiles. Here you can find all kinds of traditional crafts from the region, such as its iconic tableware, wax dolls, and all kinds of pottery.
Without a doubt, it is a cultural, traditional, and landscape tour, in which you will get to know many representative places from all over Mexico up close!
