If the specifications and requirements are met, Tula, Hidalgo, could become a Magical Town, the Secretary of Tourism, Miguel Torruco Marqués, said on Wednesday.
During a tour of the municipality of Hidalgo, the official stressed that Tula has tourist attractions and a cultural and gastronomic heritage that distinguish it.
Torruco Marqués also held a meeting with businessmen and authorities; he listened to his concerns and proposals to promote concrete actions that trigger tourism activity, the creation of anchor products and the development of high-impact events, as is done with other destinations.
The delegation led by the Secretary of Tourism toured Parque La Tolteca, a project whose main objective is to take advantage of the buildings of the Old Toltec Plant merged with industrial architecture to create a unique and vibrant space for visitors.
In addition, they visited the archaeological zone of Tula, a representative point of the Toltec culture, where the emblematic Atlanteans of Tula stand out.
The authorities and businessmen also toured the Cathedral of San José, a convent built by the evangelizers of the Franciscan Order during the time of the conquest, details a statement issued by Sectur.
The work tour of Tula also included, among other activities, tours of the Andador Quetzalcóatl and the Tula River and concluded at Rancho Los Álamos, with which the head of Sectur was able to verify the state of the destination’s tourist infrastructure, and the potential to consolidate as a Magical Town.
