Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cuernavaca (Spanish pronunciation; Classical Nahuatl) is the capital and largest city of the state of Morelos in Mexico. It was established at the archeological site of Gualupita I by the Tlahuica, "the mother culture" of Mesoamerica, approximately 3200 years ago. It is also a municipality located about 85 km (53 mi) south of Mexico City on the D-95 freeway.The city was nicknamed the "City of Eternal Spring" by Alexander von Humboldt in the ninteenth century. It has long been a favorite escape for Mexico City and foreign visitors because of this warm, stable climate and abundant vegetation. Aztec emperors had summer residences there, and even today, many famous people as well as Mexico City residents maintain homes there. Cuernavaca is also host to a large foreign resident population, including large numbers of students who come to study the Spanish language.show more
