The ruins of Cholula, constructed between 200 BC and 800 AD, are the bread and butter of the townÂ´s tourist industry. Once a majestic city of 400 temples and rival to the mighty Teotihuacan, the location was also considered MesoamericaÂ´s greatest ceremonial center due to its shrine dedicated to the Aztec god QuetzalcĂłatl (â€śplumed serpentâ€ť in NĂˇhuatl). 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.
