Sanctuary of the Lady of Remedios

At the top of a hill in Cholula sits this big orange church. It was settled on an important archaeological area, on top of one of the largest pyramids of Latin America. It began as a very small church back in the late 1500s, but after an earthquake in 1864 it was rebuilt as a monumental construction.
