Take a trip around Santa María del Oro
Santa María del Oro, Durango
The archaeological zone of Tula is the most important of the Tolteca culture, where it is said there was the encounter between light and darkness when Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca faced off.
Admire the different pyramids of the Ceremonial Center, the Place of Worship to remember the Tolteca culture, the area where ball games were played, the impressive Burnt Palace, the Coatepantli, the Chac Mool, the Zompantli and the majestic caryatids or atlantes hand carved in Basaltic stone.
The city is made up of a ceremonial site where the Pyramid of Quetzalcoatl and the Great Pyramid were erected. Next to this temple, the today so-called Burnt Palace, a structure of flat roof supported by pillars, was constructed.
