bronze+production

Tartessus was a major Phoenician center of tin commerce and bronze production.) Geography and inhabitants The town lies at 1,200 m. (4000 ft.), at the confluence of the ''Río Blanco'' with several tributaries, including the Río Orizaba, near the mouth of a large valley heading westward into the eastern Sierra Madre Oriental. This location, at the bottom of the ascent into the mountains, is an important transition point along what has been for centuries the main trade route between Mexico City and Veracruz on the Gulf (Gulf of Mexico) Coast. The climate is generally pleasant, though often cloudy and rainy, and the soil of the Orizaba valley is extraordinarily fertile. Overlooking the valley from the north is the Pico de Orizaba (Citlaltépetl), a volcano that, at 5,636 m. (18,490 ft.), is the highest mountain in Mexico and third highest in North America. thumb 250px The "Palacio de Hierro" (Image:Orizaba palacio hierro.jpg) In the town of Ixhuatlancillo north of Orizaba, and in a large mountainous area to the south (the Sierra de Zongolica), live many thousands of people who speak a variant of Nahuatl which is often called Orizaba Nahuatl (ISO (International Organization for Standardization) code nlv). History Prehistory and conquest Orizaba was already an important town at the time of the Spanish conquest, and it was in Orizaba that La Malinche, Hernán Cortés's interpreter and mistress, was married to the Spanish gentleman Juan Jaramillo. A plaque at the Temple of "The Immaculate Conception" in Huiloapan (Huiloapan de Cuauhtémoc) commemorates this event. Colonial period During the colonial period, Orizaba became an important city. On January 27, 1774, the Spanish king Carlos III (Charles III of Spain) conceded town status (''villa'') to Orizaba, and on November 29, 1830 Orizaba was declared a city. Independence war In October of 1812, José María Morelos captured the city for the insurgent army. In 1821 to the end of the war, Agustín de Iturbide was in Orizaba before and after the signature of the Agreements of Córdoba in the neigborh city. Independient period thumb Orizaba train Station, before 1901 (File:1850-1900 Orizaba train Station.jpeg) When Lucas Alamán established, in 1836, the first textile factory (''Cocolapan'' factory) of Orizaba, the city started its economic life as an industrial city. In 1839 the newspaper ''La Luz'' was created and the Veracruz by the governor Francisco Hernández y Hernández gave the name of ''Veracruz-Llave'' (remembering the General Ignacio de la Llave, who was born in Orizaba) to this state of Mexico. On May 8, 1874, Orizaba was declared the capital city of Veracruz by the governor Apolinar Castillo, but in 1878 the status was transferred to Xalapa. During the government of Porfirio Díaz, Orizaba was declared the most educated city in the Mexican province. In the late years of Porfirio Díaz' Government, two important workers' strikes occurred, those of Cananea (Strike of Cananea) and Río Blanco (strike of Río Blanco), the latter taking place in Orizaba and being an important prelude to the Mexican Revolution. The American WWI and WWII transport ship USS Orizaba (ID-1536) was named after this town. Economy thumb Melchor Ocampo´s Market (File:Mercado Melchor Ocampo en Orizaba.jpg) The Orizaba’s area ( including the municipalities of Ixtaczoquitlán, Río Blanco, Nogales (Nogales, Veracruz) and Cd. Mendoza) economy has grown significantly in the last years due to the safety of the area, being of great confidence for national and foreign investors who wants to establish in a safe place. Another important reason is the presence of recognised Universities like Universidad Veracruzana, Instituto Tecnológico de Orizaba or Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey Campus Central de Veracruz en Córdoba. The industry is mainly focused in the following areas: breweries, paper, cement, pharmaceutical, iron and steel sector, soft drinks and food, leather and shoemaker companies among others. Also in the last years the commercial area experiments a significant growth due to the opening of new Malls & Major Retailers. It´s one of the cheapest cities to live and invest in México, as Mercer consultory published in the "Estudio de costo de la vida nacional 2012"; This study includes 42 localities of México, and was done comparing 182 products and services. The inquiry also disclose that Orizaba's Valley will grow 10% in 2013, due to the lack of pollution, existence of enough water and other points like price of housing. Main sights The old City Hall ''El Palacio de Hierro'' (The Iron Palace) in the centre of the city was designed by Eiffel (Gustave Eiffel). Built with 600 tons of Belgian steel, its parts were shipped from Belgium during ''El Porfiriato'' (the government of Porfirio Díaz), to be assembled in Orizaba. The palace cost 100,000 pesos (Gold) a very large sum at the time,considering 1 peso gold was 3 dollars at the time. It was Don Manuel Carrillo Tablas who not only loaned the money to the city, but also had to pay the additional cost of unloading the palace from the port and having it reassembled at its present location, the Plaza de Armas. Unfortunately, Don Manuel Carrillo Tablas died New Year's Eve of 1899 without ever having received a cent from the city for his loan. He was a very charitable man, though, having donated the land where the present Cathedral of Orizaba now stands, as well as the adjacent shopping center known as "El Mercado." El Palacio de Hierro served as the City Hall until the city felt it was not large enough for the growing needs of the local government and therefore moved to its present location. thumb 250px Partial view of the city of Orizaba.
