A must-see if you stay in Puebla. Easy accesible by the public transport. There are several cheap buses you can use to get to and from the place. The pyramid itself is massive, there is a museum and undeground tunnels accessible for tourists. The church was built at the top of the pyramd by Spaniards in times when the pyramid... More

We toured the site itself and the museum. I recommend you hire a guide in advance to really understand all of what you are--and aren't--seeing. Buy your tickets first and start at the museum. The museum has a great overview of the entire site, much of which is buried beneath earth. Then tour the tunnel within a layer of the... More

I didn't really enjoy the visit. I mean, they didn't really have interesting information to read about the place & it was quite a long walk.

We walked up the ramp to the church before heading down and walking through the pyramid. There was construction going on in front of the visible exterior section of the pyramid and we didn't realize that we had missed access to it somewhere along the ramp. We chose not to go back up because we had already seen it from... More

The Great Pyramid is indeed the pyramid with the largest base in the world, in underground of curse but still is worth to see it! Is a lovely walk around the pyramid with the market with traditional mexican handcrafts, then going up to the hill, is a small hike to discover on the top of the pyramid is a tiny... More

This is an amazing spot not only do you get to hike up to a church built on top of a pyramid but then you get to walk through/under that very same pyramid! The little town itself is a bit too touristy for me personally but there is an amazing craft beer spot nearby called the Beer Box so enjoy... More

Really this is a very interesting place with genuine history. I do recommend that if you don't use a guide, do some research before you go so that you can truly appreciate the experience and understand what is there and the story behind it. What makes this place great is that you can actually go inside the pyramid and walk... More

It was my first visit to this archeological treasure!!! When you purchase your ticket ($65 pesos for people 12 and up) you will have access to the museum, tunnels, the structures in the back yard, and up to the church. The tunnels are an amazing experience. They are lit and we felt very safe. We got a tour guide that... More

I went in the month of July and have to say it was very beautiful. To get to the church on top of the pyramid there is a small walk up a hill. A little trying but definitely worth it. The scene from the top is beautiful, you are able to see the town and beyond. I also recommend going... More

An interesting part of history. Worth spending a day free to go up to the church but a bit confusing to get down to the ruins
