Tlalpan Centro Histórico

Tlalpan Centro Histórico
  • South

Villa de Tlalpan, San Agustín de las Cuevas, Ciudad de Tlalpan or as it is best known today, Tlalpan, is one of the oldest boroughs in the city, pre-dating even the city itself. In pre-Hispanic days, it was one of the main southern cities in the Valley of Mexico. Like many other cities, it allied with the Spaniards against the Mexicas. Nowadays this tourist hotspot is referred to by many simply as a colony or neighbourhood of Mexico City. Officially the Tlalpan historic centre does not exist, or it is not called that. Its official name is Zona Centro de Tlalpan, as noted in the founding decree and in the development programme for that Special Development Zone.
