Universidad de las Americas - Puebla sits on the former hacienda of Santa Catarina Martir. Since the University located in Cholula, the campus has grown into a beautifully developed environment supporting the educational, social and personal development of students. The campus supports four major schools and a number of research institutes and offers a number of special courses for international students.
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.
