The municipality borders the municipality of El Marqués, Huimilpan, Corregidora, Apaseo el Grande, in the state of Guanajuato. It has a territory of 759.9km2. The total population of the municipality (2010 est.) is 804 663, over 81% (651 777) of which live in the city proper. thumb 250px right Boroughs ''Delegaciones'' (File:Delegaciones de Queretaro.JPG) The municipality of Querétaro is divided into seven boroughs, called ''delegaciones'': * '''Centro Histórico''': it includes downtown and nearby areas, it is surrounded by the city's main thoroughfares (Blvd. Bernardo Quintana, 5 de Febrero Ave. and the Mexico City–Querétaro Highway). Most of the city's monuments are located here, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site designated areas, and the ''Cerro de las Campanas'' where Emperor Maximilian of Habsburg was executed. The northwestern corner is home to industrial establishments, mainly food related (Gerber (Gerber Products Company), Nestlé, Pilgrim's Pride). (pop. 230,000; area 18 km²) *'''Santa Rosa Jáuregui''': it consists mainly of rural areas, where the production of eggs, poultry and livestock are important. However, the borough includes larger towns such as Santa Rosa Jáuregui and Juriquilla. It is home to the largest water reservoir in the municipality, the ''Presa de Santa Catarina''. A relatively new state of the art industrial park has been built here (Samsung). (pop. 76,000) * '''Felix Osores Sotomayor''': most of the recent growth in the city has taken place here, the population growth rate estimated at 6%. The largest industrial area of Querétaro is located here, where lots of multinational companies have operations (Michelin, Philips). The beautiful neighborhood of Jurica is comprised in this borough. (pop. 145,000; area 40 km²) * '''Epigmenio González''': a mostly residential zone on hilly terrain. The former airport will become the third campus of the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro. (pop. 125,000; area 68 km²) * '''Josefa Vergara y Hernández''': on the slopes of the Cerro del Cimatario, its easternmost area is known as ''Centro Sur'', where the Stadium, Bus Station and City Hall are located. (pop. 200,000; area 33 km²) * '''Felipe Carrillo Puerto''': the western part consists mainly of rural areas, where the town of Tlacote is located, famous for its allegedly miraculous water springs. The eastern area is urban and integrated with the rest of the city, with industrial zones (Kellogg's) and military facilities. * '''Cayetano Rubio''': residential area, it includes the town of Hercules, a picturesque village-like area, nestled between steep slopes along the riverway of the Río Querétaro. The mayor of each borough, called ''delegado'', is appointed by the mayor of the city, although there have been attempts to make these posts popularly elected. thumb Josefa Municipal Auditorium (File:Auditorio josefa.jpg) The municipality has rolling hills, mountain ranges and flatlands. Most of the rolling hills cross the territory from south to north, paralleling the Querétaro-San Luis Potosí highway. Most plains are located in the north, and are of sedimentary soil with some protrusions of volcanic rock. Altitude varies from 1,900 to 2,460 meters above sea level with the highest elevations at mountains called El Buey, Pie de Gallo, El Patol, El Nabo, and El Paisano. The city proper is on a plain at 1,900 meters. There is only one river, the Querétaro River with carved the La Cañada. There are numerous streams, many of them seasonal, and fresh water springs near the mountain areas. The climate is temperate and semi-dry in which the summers can be hot, with high up to 36C in May and June. Freezing temperatures are possible in the winter. In most areas, various species of cacti can be seen such as the organ pipe (Stenocereus thurberi) and nopals, as well as the yucca. Trees adapted to dry climates include mesquite, willows and cypress, near streams and rivers. Animal life mostly consists of small mammals, deer, predatory birds and reptiles. In some areas, monarch butterflies (monarch (butterfly)) can be seen as well. Nature reserves in the municipality include the Peña Colorado, Tángano, Parque Ecologicao Joya-La Barreta and the El Cimatario National Park. Near the city is the Sierra Gorda de Querétaro, part of the Sierra Madre Oriental, was declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. This protected area is very rugged terrain, filled with canyons, steep mountains, waterfalls and deep abysses with a total expansion of 24,803 hectares. The area contains 360 species of birds, 130 species of mammals, 71 of reptiles and twenty-three of amphibians. It also contains about thirty percent of the country's butterfly species including the endangered Humboldt, the Jaguar the Oso Negro and the Guacamaya. Plant species include 1,710 different species including endangered species and is considered to be one of the best-preserved forested areas in Mexico. The Missionary Route of Friar Junípero Serra passes through here as caves such as the Sótano del Barro are located here. 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: www.gallos-blancos.com 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: www.aeropuertosmexico.com 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.

current historic

. However, most of Querétaro's early colonial history was marked by skirmishes between the remaining Chichimeca insurgency and the Spanish authorities, with one of the first being over the establishment of encomiendas. Conín separated the indigenous and Spanish residents of the new city, with the indigenous on and around Sangremal hill and the Spanish around where the current historic center is. The Spanish part of the city was laid out by D. Juan Sanchez de Alaniz, and the indigenous section was laid out in the traditional Otomi manner. The first city council convened in 1535, and the settlement was named a Pueblo de Indios (Indian Village) in 1537, ending the encomiendas. During this time, the Franciscans arrived for missionary work, who were later joined by the Jesuits (Society of Jesus), the Augustinians and other who built monasteries such as the Monastery of San Francisco, Lima and the Monastery of Santa Cruz (Monastery of Santa Cruz (Coimbra)). Peak of colonial era thumb left 1796 street map of Santiago de Querétaro (File:Plano de Queretaro Calado 1796.png) The settlement was declared a town in 1606 and by 1655, only Spaniards were living in the city proper. In 1656, it was decreed as the "Muy Noble y Leal Ciudad de Santiago de Querétaro" (Very Noble and Loyal City of Santiago de Querétaro). This honor was solicited by Viceroy Luís de Velasco, in recognition of Querétaro's growth, agricultural production, industry and educational institutions. By the 18th century, it was informally known as the "Pearl of the Bajío" and "The Third City of the Viceroyalty". By the 17th century, the Franciscans had been joined by the Dieguinos, who built the monastery of San Antonio, the Jesuits, who built the Colleges of San Ignacio and San Francisco Javier as well as the Dominicans, the Carmelites and the Royal Convent of Santa Clara de Asís, which was one of the largest and most opulent in New Spain. Querétaro was also the site for the training of many of missionaries that went north as far as Texas and California. Most of these were educated at the Colegio de Propagación de la Fe (College for the Propagation of the Faith), which was established at the monastery of Santa Cruz in 1683. Some of its graduates even went as far as South America. Few of the buildings from the 16th century have remained intact, due to the violence during the city's initial development, which reached its peak in the 17th century. As a result, most of the city's oldest structures are of Baroque style (Baroque architecture). Independence and capital status thumb Glassworking made Querétaro an economic center in the 1700s, and glass crafting is still a novelty trade mark of the city today. (File:vidrio 1.jpg) Querétaro is considered to be one of the "cradles" of Mexican Independence (Mexican War of Independence) and much of the credit is given to Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez. She was the wife of the city's mayor, called a ''corregidor'', at the beginning of the 19th century. She used her prominent position to gather intelligence for the nascent insurgency. 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.
