Cholula is considered the oldest city in America, inhabited without interruption since its origins. The former Franciscan convent of San Gabriel, one of the oldest in America, is located in this city.  Both the city and the convent rise up next to the Popocatepetl volcano, as if they are trying to reach that snowy giant. Let us not forget the Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, built in the sixteenth century by the Spanish and made of domes covered with tiles. It was placed right over the Great Pyramid, the foundation that appears to be a hill rather than an archaeological site. Time, people, and life come and go underneath this site. When visiting this Magical Town, you can explore the Great Pyramid and walk through its maze of tunnels or its outer paths.

As you stroll through the passageways of the market, your eyes will enjoy the bright blues carefully handcrafted into the fine talavera ceramic, a 16th century tradition applied to contemporary designs.
