The Atlantes de Tula (giant warriors stone sculptures) are just four but the surroundings add to the whole. You can imagine the former grandeur of the place by watching the Atlantes.

This is one of the most important cultural and historic areas of the México Prehispánico near to Mexico city you can find this interesting place. If you visite it, you should eat the "barbacoa", one of the most famous dishes from the area and the Maguey Worms.

The ruins at Tula are not as large nor impressive as TEOTIHUACAN or CHICHEN ITZA, but if you are a fan of ancient history or a student of archaeology or anthropology, It is well worth the price of admission. The area is maintained and run by the INAH (Instituto Nacional de Arqueologia e Historia) (National Institute of Archaeology and History).... More

Absolutely amazing. It is small and very little is discovered. Apparently the 'Atlantis'' and remains of the pyramids is just a tip of a massive pyramid underneath much before any Toltec civilisation.

It was beautiful and wonderful experiences. In order to get to the ruins you will have to walk for 1 mile, but it doesn't feel like a mile since you are enjoying the fresh air and all the beautiful things around. Ones you get there, you will be able to look around the ruins and have take pictures. I recommend... More

Amazing stone figures, at the end of a lovely path surrounded by different cacti and endemic trees. It is a shame that some visitors show no respect for this ancient place, as they touch and climb forbidden places o figures.

You have plenty of wonderful places to visit in Mexico and these ruins are not among them. I have been very interested in the incredible work of the ants which have been building a megalopolis below all of this. The main problem resides in the fact that you are driving, trying to get yourself out of Mexico city (that is... More

Beautiful site with amazing frescoes and carved panels and the remains of several ball courts and ceremonial platforms (pyramids). The site has a very nice small museum with objects found here (more in the Anthropological Museum in Mexico City). Unlike Teotihuacan you have to use your imagination a bit more to see the site as it must have looked. Small... More

this is not one of the most famous sites nor the most spectacular but it worth a visit. First, its huge Atlanteans distinguish tula from other tourist sites. But what is really amazing, if you are sensitive to atmosphere it is this sense of calm and serenity that emanates from this place.
