Ruin
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.

  • For those things of fate I was for work in Tula de Allende and a representative of the company led me to visit this archaeological site and is happy about so that practically was a must-see of the Sunday entry it not commingled and then joined a Spanish will customer fixed and if the Atlanteans had pistols and many legends also there are two soccer fields and the legend says that after striker win many legends ate it anyway and the best time to visit is on 21 March either the spring day where are many groups with traditional dresses is a show unforgettable and luckily I was 5 Springs followed by the 2008 to 2012 is something unforgettable so so when came my daughters carry and several friends also and almost always with my Racing Club t-shirt.

  • Certainly unaware of this archaeological site, I'm grateful visit, it may not be very large as other cities of mesoamerica worse has its history and atlantes of Tula are no exception! Try to arrive early because there are too much people more bridges :(

  • Very close to the city of Mexico (1.30 m) by car you will find this site which is known to many city dwellers but visited by few. Place well worth worth the visit, even though it is not a huge pyramid as the South-East of the country, is unique because in its Summit is a huge statues that look like totems, there is no other place like this in our country. In the place they sell crafts, water and there are bathrooms. And if you go on Sunday it has no cost entry.

  • It is a really nice place from the prehispanic cultures. Not very crowded but full of mexican history
  • Fantastic place. Beautifully restored and protected site with explanations in English. Well worth a visit!
  • One of the most strong energy field considering Pyramids
  • Very nice place, but a bit small (1hr maximum to see everything)
  • Great site to see the Atlantean figures!
