Ruins of Cholula - Ruin Cholula - Mexico

The ruins of Cholula, constructed between 200 BC and 800 AD, are the bread and butter of the town´s tourist industry. Once a majestic city of 400 temples and rival to the mighty Teotihuacan, the location was also considered Mesoamerica´s greatest ceremonial center due to its shrine dedicated to the Aztec god Quetzalcóatl (“plumed serpent” in Náhuatl). Each of the various tribes that conquered and pillaged the city in later years built over the original structures, making the entire archeological site a hodgepodge of Toltec, Olmec and Mixtec influences.
