The waters of this spring has been said to be miraculous the site itself having allegedly been the place where appearances of a lady in white (supposed to be the patroness saint of the city) have reportedly been seen. Unfortunately, access to this natural water source has of late been impeded and virtually blocked, its previous access road having been long fenced off leaving the spring almost unnoticeable already to busy passersby.

. It is fed by a natural water flow and used to be the source of potable water for the surrounding area. ;Tizatlán Open Chapel The Tizatlán Open Chapel was built in the 16th century over a pyramid platform which was part of the palace of Xicohténcatl the Elder. This building appears in the Tlaxcala Codex (History of Tlaxcala) from 1550. Hernán Cortés placed a cross here along with indigenous leaders Maxixcatzin and Xicohténcatl. There are still fragments of murals depicting the baptism of Jesus, the Three Wise Men and of God, the Father, surrounded by angels playing musical instruments. Adjoining this is the Tizatlán archeological site, in which still remain six semicircular columns, two altars with paintings similar to those of the Borgia Codex, where the gods Tezcatlipoca and Tlahuizcalpantecutli appear. The Chapel of the Well of the Miraculous Water (Capilla del Pocito de Agua Milagrosa) is a small building at a fresh water spring. It began as a wall built to protect the spring at the end of the 17th or beginning of the 18th century. The chapel building dates from between 1892 and 1896 but the entrance arch is older. It has an octagonal layout. One of the walls contains an oil by Isauro G. Cervantes from 1913 and the rest of the walls have murals with Biblical scenes related to water done by Desiderio Hernández Xochitiotzin and Pedro Avelino. Traditionally, red pottery ducks are sold in the small atrium as object of devotion or for healing. The Chapel of San Nicolasito was originally constructed of wood in the 16th century dedicated to Nicholas of Tolentino. In the 19th century the chapel was reconstructed to what is now one of the side chapels. Little by little it was enlarged to its present size. The San Esteban Temple was constructed from sandstone in the 20th century in Neoclassical style. Its atrium serves as a cemetery and its interior has a mural depicting the baptism of the four indigenous lords of Tlaxcala in the 16th century. The San Buenaventura Atempan hermitage was constructed around the time that Cortés was building the brigantines to invade Tenochtitlan. At that time, the structure was in a very rural area. Over the centuries it was abandoned and crumbled with only some of the walls remaining. Some of its images and other objects can now be found at a new temple nearby. Events The city celebrates Carnival starting the Friday before Ash Wednesday, with the burning of an effigy to represent “bad humor” accompanied by funeral music. The following day, the queen of the carnival is selected. The main parade with floats occurs on Tuesday. During the long weekend there are various other events such as dance contests and recitals of traditional dace such as that of the Huehues from the community of Acuitlapilco. On Ash Wednesday, ceremonies end with a hanging of an effigy called “La Octava del Carnaval” Often the image is satirical, and of a person considered worthy of criticism. The Feria de Todos Santos is an important event, dedicated to the agriculture, handcrafts and industry of the state. It also has cultural events such as concerts, art exhibits and dance as well as regional food and an inaugural parade.

The Middle Atlas lies in the center of Morocco and constitutes its natural water tower, as many of the country’s most important river systems: the Moulouya, the Sebou, the Bou Regreg, and the Oum Rbia originate in it. Historically, however, despite its centrality, the Middle Atlas has been an “empty quarter.” Though the area was regularly crossed by traders, and though the alpine summer pasture was used by herders, the harsh climate and relatively poor soils long impeded permanent human settlement. Today the Middle Atlas is still one of the least densely populated parts of Morocco, even when compared to other mountainous regions such as the High Atlas and the Rif. The modern town of Ifrane was established by the French administration in 1928. A small fort overlooking Oued Tizguit (now part of the palace precinct) had already been built during the period of military conquest in order to secure the Fez to Khenifra road across the mountains. The gently rolling landscape, with fresh springs and wildflowers, was judged to have potential as a summer resort for colon families from the Saïss Plain, Meknes and Fez. Fifty hectares of agricultural land upstream from the zâwiyah, in an area originally designated as Tourthit, or “garden,”was expropriated for the project. Ifrane was conceived as a “hill station” or colonial type of settlement. It is a resort town set high up in the mountains so that Europeans can find relief from the summer heat of tropical colonies. The British were the first to develop this type of resort in India, the best known of which is Simla in the Himalayas which served as their “summer capital.” The French built similar hill stations in Indochina, such as Dalat established in 1921. Ifrane was not the only hill station to be built in Morocco. The French also built one in neighboring Immouzer, as well as at Oukaimeden in the High Atlas. Hill stations share some common characteristics. As they are intended for expatriate European families, and they are often designed in such a way as to remind their foreign inhabitants of their distant homelands. The architectural style adopted is imported from the mother country in order that the place look like “little England” or “douce France.” This is the case in Ifrane where various mountain styles such as “maison basque” “Jura” and “Savoy” were used. Moreover, trees and flowering plants were also imported from the European home country. This too was intended to heighten the appearance and feeling of home. In Ifrane, lilac trees, plane trees (platanes), chestnut trees (marronniers and châtaigniers) and linden trees (tilleuls) were all imported for this purpose. Ifrane is a popular altitude training destination Egan, E. Notes from higher grounds: an altitude training guide for endurance athletes, Kukimbia Huru Publishing and many of Morocco's top athletes, as well as some form Europe, have trained in the town. Climate Located in the Atlas Mountains, Ifrane has a Mediterranean climate, shifting from cold in winter to warm days in the summer months of July–September. The nights are always cool (or cold in winter), with daytime temperatures generally rising about +6~12 °C (+10~21 °F) every day. The winter highs typically reach only

. During the colonial period, a communal water supply system was developed, taking advantage of the natural water flows in the box canyon that surrounds the town. where the Aztecs built a garrison to keep the rebellious Chontal (Tequistlatecan)es in line, in Quauhquechollan (modern day Huauquechula) near Atlixco where the Aztecs built a garrison in order to always have forces close to their traditional enemies the Tlaxcalteca (Tlaxcala (Nahua state)), Chololteca (Cholula) and Huexotzinca, and in Malinalco near Toluca. The latter is where Ahuitzotl built garrisons and fortifications to keep watch over the Matlatzinca, Mazahua and Otomi (Otomi people)es and to always have troops close to the enemy Tarascan state - the borders with which were also guarded and at least partly fortified on both sides. The area was first settled between 1800 an 1300 BC with remains found around the hills of Nixcongo, Exhacienda de Monte de Pozo and Tepoxtepec showing Olmec influence. During the Pre-classic and Classic periods (Mesoamerica) the area was dominated by the Tarascan. During the Aztec invasion of the area, the Tenancingo chief Tezozomoctli, collaborated with Axayacatl to subdue the rival chief Chicaquiauh of Malinalco and to conquer Calpulli de Coapipitzoatepec (Xochiaca). In return, he remained an independent chieftain within the Aztec Empire. In 1535, after the Conquest, the area was given to Juan Salcedo. In 1537, the Augustinians evangelized the area and built a hermitage here. The modern town of Tenancingo was founded by the Spanish in 1551 near the older native settlements at the base of the Hill of Las Tres Marías (The Three Marias). In 1771, the Carmelites built a monastery here. In 1861, the village gained town status, and in1878, Tenancingo was recognized as a city.

796 at an elevation of 118 feet (36 m). The population was 35,972 at the 2010 census, up from 25,869 at the 2000 census. The name ''los banos'' has its origins with Spanish (spanish language) and was named after a natural water spring that feeds natural wetlands in the western San Joaquín Valley (San Joaquin Valley). The original Spanish spelling was '''Los Baños''', meaning "the baths" in reference to the adjacent water source. http: index.php?option com_content&view article&id 2&Itemid 125 Its official spelling is without the eñe (Ñ). Official signs do not insert the tilde above the n. It can be pronounced as if the eñe were present as in "los banyos," or as it is spelled - an anglicized (Anglicization) "loss bannos". The city is served by Los Banos Municipal Airport for air transport access.

and his captain Juan Aldama. '''Tequisquiapan''' is a town and municipality (municipalities of Mexico) located in the southeast of the state of Querétaro in central Mexico. The center of the town has cobblestone streets, traditional rustic houses with wrought iron fixtures, balconies, and wooden windowsills, which is the legacy of its 300 year heritage as a colonial town populated mostly by indigenous people. This, the climate, the local natural water springs and the climate have made the town a popular weekend getaway for cities such as Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) and Mexico City, which has led to the construction of weekend homes in the town. The town and municipality are located in the far southeast of the state of Querétaro, just north of the small industrial city of San Juan del Río, and within three hour’s driving distance from both the city of Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) and Mexico City. This is one reason why it is a popular place to visit on weekends and many second homes have been constructed here. The municipality borders the municipalities of Colón (Colón, Querétaro), Ezequiel Montes (Ezequiel Montes, Querétaro), San Juan del Río and Pedro Escobedo (Pedro Escobedo, Querétaro) with the state of Hidalgo (Hidalgo (state)) to the east. The municipal government consists of a municipal president and thirteen officials called “regidors” to represent the various communities of the municipality. ''' At the beginning of the War of Independence, Aldama was a captain of the cavalry regiment of the Queen's militia. He attended the conspiratorial meetings for independence in Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro), organized by Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez, despite having to travel from San Miguel el Grande (now San Miguel de Allende) in neighboring Guanajuato. * The constitution of Mexico (art. 44) and the Statute of Government of the Federal District clearly establish the synonymity of Mexico City and the Federal District (''La ciudad de México es el Distrito Federal''); that is, the city is organized as a ''federal'' territory (district); the district is coextensive with the city. When an address is written as "México, D.F.", that does not imply that México is a city within the Federal District, but the Federal District in itself. (See for example the similar case of Washington, D.C.). Boroughs of the Federal District are indeed boroughs of Mexico City. In other words, ''there is only one city in the Federal District'', Mexico City. The current naming convention implies that each borough in the Federal District is equivalent to a city within the constituent states. That is not so, as I will explain on the following point: * By using the current naming convention, we are inappropriately saying that the boroughs are second-level administrative divisions with full autonomy, like that of cities and or municipalities. They are not: unlike municipalities they do not have a council (ayuntamiento), nor a chairman (regidor) nor a board of trustees (síndicos). Moreover, boroughs do not have regulatory powers and are not even autonomous in providing municipal services, which are centralized in the Government of the Federal District, even if part of the administration (or application) may be delegated to the boroughs. While used for administrative purposes, boroughs of the Mexican Federal District more appropriately resemble the Boroughs of New York City (Borough (New York City)). Moreover, other cities in Mexico are also divided into boroughs (e.g. Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro), Tijuana, Cancún, etc.), in which case boroughs are divisions of ''cities'' (whether second or third-level) and should be treated as such. * In all official correspondence in Mexico, addresses are written as follows: ''Delegación Cuauhtémoc, México, D.F.'', thus implying that the boroughs are part of the city and ''do not supersede the city'' neither they conform a city themselves (as would be implied by saying ''Cuauhtémoc, D.F.''). - 9 Estadio La Corregidora 34,130 http: Estadio.htm Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) Querétaro Querétaro FC - Airports Mexico City is served by Mexico City International Airport (IATA Airport Code: MEX). This airport is Latin America's busiest and largest in traffic, with regular (daily) flights to North America, mainland Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Asia, and with codeshare agreements spanning the entire globe, mainly thanks to the most important carrier based there, Aeroméxico (Skyteam). It is used by over 26 million passengers per year. http: DF aptoDFes.htm Aeropuertos Mexico This traffic exceeds the current capacity of the airport, which has historically centralized the majority of air trafficked in the country. An alternative option is Lic. Adolfo López Mateos International Airport (IATA Airport Code: TLC) located in the nearby Toluca with about 4.5 million passengers transported in 2008. About 31 million people went through the city's airports in 2008. The government engaged in an extensive restructuring program that includes the new second adjacent terminal, which began operations in 2007, and the enlargement of four other airports — at the nearby cities of Toluca (Mateos Airport (Lic. Adolfo López Mateos International Airport)), Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) (Querétaro International Airport), Puebla (Puebla, Puebla) (Hermanos Serdán International Airport), and Cuernavaca — that, along with Mexico City's airport, comprise the ''Grupo Aeroportuario del Valle de México'', distributing traffic to different regions in Mexico. The city of Pachuca will also provide additional expansion to central Mexico's airport network. Mexico City's airport is the main hub for 11 of the 21 national airline companies (List of airlines of Mexico). - 15 May Capture of Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) by the forces of the Republic which led to the fall of the Second Mexican Empire (1867). - thumb right 250px TTC sales and technical center, Plymouth, Michigan (Image:Transmission Technologies Corporation headquarters building Plymouth Michigan.JPG) '''Transmission Technologies Corporation''' is an American manufacturer of automobile transmissions (transmission (mechanics)), best known for their TREMEC line of manual transmissions. The company has a sales and engineering office in Plymouth, Michigan, and production facilities in Querétaro, Querétaro Mexico, and Knoxville, Tennessee. Sometimes the district office's overprint included a number designating the suboffice for which the stamps were intended, and occasionally suboffices applied their own handstamps. Larger offices had several different designs of handstamp in use; Mexico City used five different devices to handstamp the stamps of 1856, each with a different appearance, while the districts of Guadalajara (Guadalajara, Jalisco), Guanajuato (Guanajuato, Guanajuato), Puebla (Puebla, Puebla), Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro), and San Luis Potosí (San Luis Potosí, San Luis Potosí) each had three devices. In addition to the track, the construction of Tren Suburbano also benefited from like-new electrification infrastructure already in place along most of the route, part of National Railways of Mexico (Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México) (NdeM)'s Mexico City-Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) 25 kV 60 Hz mainline electrification completed in the 1990s but de-energized a few years later after NdeM was privatized (Rail transport in Mexico#Privatization). From Jalpan, General Tomás Mejía led military actions here against the Liberal government installed in the state of Querétaro and the country. He managed to take the main square of Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) in 1857. However, at the end of the Reform War, he was executed along with Maximilian I of Mexico . Today, Palacio has stores in Mexico City (10 stores, of which 3 are known as ''Outlets''), Monterrey (1 store), Puebla (Puebla, Puebla) (1 store), and Guadalajara (Guadalajara, Jalisco) (its newest store). The company owns an adequate lot in the city of Querétaro (Querétaro, Querétaro) as a possible future location and has begun construction on the store opening in Playa del Carmen in 2013. Plans for a new store in Guatemala City are currently in planning and construction, making this the first Palacio outside Mexico.
