Visit the former Toltec capital of Tula and its famous stone warriors.

This day trip will take you to Tula, a Mesoamerican archeological site in the Mexican state of Hidalgo, 60 miles north of the capital. Tula served the capital of the Toltec civilisation and is best known today for the four striking Los Atlantes stone statues which stand atop the site's largest pyramid, dedicated to Quetzalcoatl, an ancient god.


A visit to Tula is easily combined with the extensive monastery and superb baroque church of Tepotzotlan, designated as one of the country's Pueblos Mágicos (magic towns).
