Located right outside of Puebla’s capital, Cholula is the place where I truly fell head over heels for Mexico.

Do you know why we feel such fascinated about places like the Giza Pyramids, Athens, Stonehenge or Teotihuacan? The answer is very simple, they are mystic places where millennial cultures bloomed in the ancient times that still amazes the visitors; being able to walk through those places where people lived a thousand years ago in a splendid time where you could breathe and feel those gods walking among the mortals.
