Tula, Tula de Allende

4.3
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.

  • You'll have to walk quite a stretch to get to the Atlanteans, but definitely worthwhile. After the walk, walk up the stairs but see the stone carvings is impressive. The archaeological area is not very big, has their signs where they explain (not take Guide). Put on your hat, sunscreen use and live a different experience, because they are not only the pyramids you can find in any archaeological site, if not, figures "Atlanteans" that are impressive.

  • "Atlantes of Tula" are impressive and are very close to the central bus and the Centre so it is very easy to reach. There is a Museum at the entrance of the archaeological site, it is recommended to enter before to understand everything. From the start the Hall to get to the Giants there are artisans selling everything and at a great price. There is no restaurants or places to eat near the area but the fields are perfect for taking food there if you take.

  • Atlantes of Tula are not monoliths are a few Atlanteans of 4 pieces each of them worth seeing them and will, and unfortunately it is said that there are several atlantes of 10 still buried meters which only you can see your feet in the museum visit worth take it gu IA da in order to receive more information about the culture

  • 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...
  • 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
