The place where I was born, Xalapa, among its
inhabitants, is known as "Xalapa la Bella" (The Beautiful Xalapa). You
can verify it yourself by watching some photos of Xalapa la Bella
from the Xalapa Tourist Network (just
click on the central picture, then "Sitios de Interes" and then Xalapa
on the map or menu). In the same site, you will find much more about Xalapa
but pay attention to a nice overview of the Xalapa
Anthropology Museum. A short review of the history of the place can
be found on the VisitMexico
Xalapa, garden city.
