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.

  • Great place, this well-preserved and in addition to the archaeological remains, you can see the enough vegetation of the cactus, the Museum is a little careless and baths in bad state, but the "Atlantis" as such, very impressive. Highly recommended for families

  • The location is not as organized as other attractions of the country, but manages to reach alone quietly. The bus to the city of Tula (Tula de Allende) depart from the North Terminal of the city of Mexico, where also leave the bus to Teotihuacán. The company Ovnibus is the one that has the best bus to this path of almost 2:00 for travel and no need to buy the tickets in advance. Is at the top of the pyramid B (Temple of Quetzalcóatl) are the Tula Atlantes, four figures made of stone of more than four meters high representing their warriors.

  • Great site to Tula, preceded by a very modern entrance and walk through prickly pear, cactus, agaves and saguri. Nice large playing field of pelota and from the forest of columns of the building. The big base on which stand the columns Totem is the point from which you can admire the entire area that has enacted a particular energy. The large forecourt with the small pyramid is also a place of particular beauty. Not to be missed!
