From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tepatitlán de Morelos is a city and municipality founded in 1883, in the central Mexican state of Jalisco. It is located in the area known as Los Altos de Jalisco (Highlands of Jalisco), about 70 km east of state capital Guadalajara. Tepatitlán means “Hard Stone Place”, in the Nahuatl language. But recent artifactual discoveries indicate that the name may actually have a different meaning than the one that is conventionally accepted. The matter has yet to be settled conclusively by scholars and officials. With a 2005 census population of 82,975 it is the state's eighth-largest community and serves as a significant city outside of the capital. Its most distinctive features are a the Fine Baroque Cathedral and the fact that a State Agricultural University campus is located there. Its surrounding municipality of the same name had an area of 1,532.78 km² (591.81 sq mi) and a population of 126,625 in the 2005 census, but its territory and population have been reduced significantly since the beginning of 2007 with the creation of the new municipality of Capilla de Guadalupe from the eastern part of Tepatitlán de Morelos.

It's nickname is "Tepa". It is also the largest producer of eggs in Mexico, as well as a large producer of tequila. Oddly, the fleur-de-lys can be seen in a number of public spaces and buildings, including the Santuario de Guadalupe.

Fher, lead-singer/songwriter of the internationally recognised Mexican rock band Mana, has mentioned in an interview for Latina Magazine, that he sampled the best tequila of his life in Tepatitlan. This is considered by some a snub to Tequila, Jalisco (the city which bares the name of the drink). (source needed).
