Observe ancient ruins at Zona Arqueologica de 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.

  • It is a beautiful place with impressive sculptures. The guides are funny. I almost fell but it was worth the climb to see the atlanteans.

  • There is a pedestrian entrance a short walk from town that is not open even on Sunday requiring an extra 15 minute walk the long way around, convenient for cars. This is a problem for those needing to checkout by noon. Website leads to believe it is free on Sunday but instead they discriminate against foreigners by charging 85 pesos. So avoid Sunday as there is no advantage and there will be a crowd to contend with plus limit of 500 people only open 10-2. Otherwise pleasant walk among cactus
  • Worth visiting if you want to know mire about the ancient history of Mexico
