At first sight, the pyramid is not visible at all. Actually… the pyramid is not visible. Period. The pyramid is covered for the most part, making it look like a regular hill. From the side, it just looks as if there’s a church at the very top of that hill. But with closer inspection (and with the purchase of a ticket) I was finally able to see the ruins.
It is honestly outstanding to even think about the cultural and religious significance this place holds. It is very telling not only of Mexican history but perhaps other places that have also been conquered. A very common passage of these places is the attempt to erase the previous religious practices and as a consequence of this, the destruction of their temples is only too common.
This pyramid is a very unique case. It is not exactly clear how the church was built on top of the pyramid. Although, some say that the pyramid was already covered when the Spanish chose to build their church, Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios.
