Archaeological site


The site is located in the city of Tula de Allende in the state of Hidalgo, northwest of Mexico City. .
The archeological site consists of a museum, remains of an earlier settlement called Tula Chico as well as the main ceremonial site called Tula Grande. The main attraction is the Pyramid which is topped by high basalt columns carved in the shape of Toltec warriors.

Itinerary

- Pick up at your hotel

- Visit to Tula archaeological site

Pyramid B is the home of the four massive statues (referred to as "atalantes") that are associated with the historic site. The four statues, which stand about fifteen feet high, represent high-ranking Toltec warriors.

Building 4 was believed by Acosta to be a royal palace for the rulers of Tula. Little remains of whatever structure was once there: now only parts of four rooms remain.

"The Burned Palace" named by archaeologist Jorge Acosta because he found convincing evidence, such as charred timbers and scorch marks on walls, that the building had once been burned.

- Back to the hotel in Mexico City
