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.

  • Went to this site in Tula today after wanting to visit for years. Unfortunately, the entire site was CLOSED and security had no idea when it might reopen. We had driven 6 hours to get there and were VERY disappointed having made the trip specially to see this site. The internet and the Tula website showed the place as being open currently. The guard said it had been closed since MARCH 21st this year !!! How many others had the same experience as we did because they were too lazy to put correct information on the website and internet. ??? Brian
