FAMOUS FOR BEING THE CRADLE OF THE ICONIC "CUERA TAMAU-LIPECA"

A beautiful, Magical Town located in the Sierra Madre Oriental, in an area of transition between the desert and the forest in the state of Tamaulipas.

Founded in 1617, its history can be seen in the downtown area, which has preserved its original layout, cobbled streets, and 18th and 19th-century buildings adorned with beautiful wrought ironwork.

It is famous for being the creator of the emblematic "cuera tamaulipeca," an iconic garment of the region. These garments are handcrafted, and you can also find jackets, skirts, boots, as well as accessories like bags, wallets, and keychains.

One of the most interesting traditions that has been preserved over the years is the "tertulias tultecas." Dr. Raúl Lara Gallardo organizes these gatherings, reminiscent of the Porfirio Díaz era, featuring piano performances, recitations, songs, stories, and jokes, all accompanied by sweetcorn tamales and corn-based "atole de maíz de teja." Visitors are always warmly welcomed.

This picturesque town enjoys a temperate climate, with relatively dry weather and little rainfall. During the summer months, temperatures range from 25 to 30ºC, and during winter, they range between 12 and 17ºC.

Tula is located 144 km (about one hour and 40 minutes) from Ciudad Victoria, 286 km (four hours) from Tampico, and 195 km (two hours and fifteen minutes) from the city of San Luis Potosí.
