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  site.
