maplesyrup To learn the history of Catholic Virgins is to learn the history of colonization. La Virgen de los Remedios was brought to Mexico by the conquistadores.
The Virgin is considered to be “Spanish” and a patroness to them and to the indigenous who adopt Spanish ways. She was proclaimed as the “guardian of the Spanish Army.” The purpose of this was to counter Miguel Hidalgo's use of the Virgin of Guadalupe (which was an image of the Virgin discovered by a Mexican peasant) as a symbol of his independence movement.

maplesyrup The church you see on the top of what looks like a big hill is actually on top of the pyramid Tlachihualtepetl in Cholula, the worlds largest pyramid, which you can see an excavated part of on the bottom.
The Franciscan monks tried placing a cross in the temple on top of the pyramid three times. Each time it was struck by lightening. Finally they razed the temple and using the stones of the pyramid, constructed the church dedicated to Our Lady of Remedies that you see a later version of here. I am standing in the courtyard that contains three alters for sacrifices to Quetzalcoatl.
