#1 of 14 in Historic Sites in Hidalgo
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.

  • Worth visiting this beautiful place full of good vibe and a very interesting history. Parking is ample and free. The entrance is worth 70, but it is free for children under 13 years old, seniors and teachers and students with credential. Very good plan!
