Location: 

Cholula, site of the Universidad de las Américas, is seven miles from the city of Puebla. One of the most important cities of Mesoamerica, Cholula was a site devoted to the religion of Quetzalcoatl. The Great Pyramid, upon which the Spaniards built a church to display their dominance in the 16th century, has now been excavated and is a remarkable testament to the high level of civilizations that preceded the Spanish conquest.

 

Nearby Puebla, established in 1531, has a population of approximately 1.5 million and sits at 7,000 feet elevation. Sixty miles southeast of Mexico City, Puebla is host to a rich local culture, stunning colonial architecture, and views of some of Mexico’s highest peaks and volcanoes that display their snow-capped peaks year around.
