The town of Tecali de Herrera is located about 47 kilometres (29 mi) southeast of the city of Puebla.
Tecali was one of the most important cities of the Toltec−Chichimeca nobility, in the pre-Columbian era. It is registered in the "Matricula de Tributos" made during the time of Moctezuma. In the Nahuatl language the name Tecali derives fromtetl (stone) and calli (house), meaning 'where the houses of stone are.'
