It is the capital and largest city in the state of Morelos. In the 19th century, the city was nicknamed "the city of eternal spring" by German scientist and explorer Alexander Von Humboldt. About 350,000 people live in the historical city. It is a favorite vacation spot of many residents of Mexico City due to its closeness and mild climate.
