Tula Atlanteans Site & Tepotzotlan
Tula is an important archeological site in Mexico of the Toltec
culture (Pre-Aztec). The major attraction of the Archaeological Site are the famous “Atlantes” or “Atlanteans” of 4.8 meters height (14.7 Ft), each one made with basaltic rock, that guard the superior part of the Tlahuizcalpantecutli Temple or “Morning Star”.
It’s situated 60 km northwest Teotihuacan, (1.5 hours from Mexico city Downtown) in a region of small gullies and well-communicated valleys.
The place is formed by a series of constructions with deep religious symbolism, such as the Central Altar, the Coatentli or Snakes Wall, the Palacio Quemado, Ball Game and the Tzompantli.
This is the most important one of the tolteca culture, and is consider to be a major influence for Aztecs and Mayan cities like Chichen-Itza.
