Wander the large plateau on the the top of the pyramid, taking note of the ornate church and views of the surrounding volcanoes. Afterwards, head to the Church of Santa Maria Tonantzintla in the town of Cholula, a chapel famous for its elaborate interior decorations and significance to local religious tradition.
