The western side of the zocalo in Cholula (San Pedro Cholula). This building inhabits the town hall, but also a lot of restaurants and cafés. A zocalo is the main square in mexican cities. Cholula is the historical political and religious centre of the area. Later the spaniards in an effort to destroy this dominance founded the nearby Puebla and succeeded with their plan. Today Cholula is a small city next to Puebla with it’s 2 mio. inhabitants. However Cholula is still widely known as in the middle of the city there is a big hill with a spanish church on top. This hill covers the biggest pyramid ever built (in area covered) by mankind.
