Magazine Tourist attractions The Largest Pyramid In The World Is Located In Mexico

In Mexico, in Puebla, there is a large hill, under which is the largest pyramid in the world. At the top of the hill is the Church of the Mother of God, built by the Spaniards in 1594.

It is not known who built this mysterious 2,300-year-old building. It is believed that its creators did not know that the clay from which the pyramid was built is a suitable soil for the growth of plants that completely cover the pyramid nowadays. For that reason, it was extremely difficult to spot her.

In 1519, Cortez invaded the ancient city of Cholula, but did not notice the pyramid. The local population did not notice it until 1910.
