  • A beautiful site that encloses the remains of the Toltec capital. The canvases and pillars on top of one of the two pyramids and the bas-reliefs at the base are truly impressive. It is a little frequented site by tourists so you can visit it in peace and calmly. It is a pity that currently the museum that supports it is closed for renovation until the date to be allocated.

  • It impresses with its uniqueness. It seems somewhat abandoned if you compare it to other sites (Palenque, Chichen Itza).
