Tlalnepantla de Baz is located in the middle of the metropolitan area of the State of Mexico (Estado de México). Here, you 'll find the best shopping malls, two of the best arqueological sites in the country and historic city centre with a cathedral which dates from 1535.

 

 

What does “Tlalnepantla de Baz” mean?
The word “Tlalnepantla” is formed by two words in Nahuatl. “Tllali” (earth) and “Nepantla” (in the middle). Thus, it is translated as: “In the middle of the earth” or “Land of the middle”

Its name is due to its ancient location between the otomi and mexica civilizations.

“Baz” honors Gustavo Baz Prada, a native of Tlalnepantla, a courageous revolutionary, acomplished politician, two time Governor of the State of Mexico and noteworthy physician.


HISTORY
Due to the chichimeca settlement founded in the XII century, Tlalnepantla is of much arqueological and historic interest.

After the Spanish conquest and due to the foundation of convents, Tlalnepantla became increasingly important and a fixed point in the route which communicated the Valley of Mexico with the provinces to the north.
During this time period, large estates (haciendas) began tu be built and many of them are still worth visiting such as: Ex Hacienda de Santa Mónica, Ex Hacienda de San Pablo de en medio.

In 1848, Tlalnepantla became a municipality and by 1888, it had been split into eleven separate municipalities.
In 1917, the State of Mexico was divided into 119 municipalities, Tlalnepantla being one of them.

On October 11th 1948, It became a city thanks to the then Governor of the state, Alfredo del Mazo Vélez.
