Observe ancient ruins at Tula, a Mesoamerican archeological site that once served as the capital of the Toltec Empire. Today the ruins consist of a settlement, a main cermonial site, and the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl--the most popular of the attractions. The pyramid itself features four well-preserved, tall basalt columns carved to resemble Toltec warriors on top. While here, check out the on-site museum, which features displays of blueprints and Toltec culture, architectecture, and artwork. Tula is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Tula de Allende Edition.

    The ruins of the archaeological site are perfect. Very interesting ride. Look for a good tour guide to explain all the details. Is very worthwhile.

    Parked comfortable and free, just have to give to the "next comes" a museum that lacks lighting. Outside are to offer guide service, it is worthwhile to hire him. Many options to buy a souvenir. Wear CAP and blocker because the Sun to lead.

    Caution with the location that sends the GPS, since such access is closed there is around the archaeological site to allar main access, parking is very wide, the area is very well maintained and has a couple of playgrounds for ball in good condition, clear and the Atlanteans.

    Make sure to get a tour guide. Tula has one of three fully intact Chacmool. On Sunday it is free for citizens of Mexico. We were unable to find a English speaking tour guide. However, Rafa was an amazing tour guide. Passionate about what he does and very knowledgeable.

    Nice place to learn a bit about these ancient civilizations that lived in Mexico. However, too many tourist shops selling crap...
