Since the earthquake the access to the top and church is closed. Still it is worth walking through the tunnels and around the pyramid. Avoid weekends specially Sundays as there are many visitors. During the week someone is nearly alone.

This is a great place to visit if you are in Cholula, it is very close to the church which I would also recommend visiting. You can go inside the pyramids, if you don't like being in enclosed spaces I would not recommend this. Around...More
