Covered in grass and crowned by the Catholic shrine to La Virgen de los Remedios, the Great Pyramid, built in 200 BC, initially resembles a big hill. Upon closer inspection you┬┤ll be able to see that, although not as toweringly magnificent as the ruins at Teotihuacan, the pyramid beats even its Egyptian counterparts in terms of size. You can pretend to be Indiana Jones as you explore the tunnels underneath the Pyramid (strictly for non-claustrophobics as they┬┤re very narrow) or take the short, but strenuous, hike to the top, where you┬┤ll be rewarded with magnificent views of Popocat├ępetl and the town below.
