    This is the currently accepted glyph city of Tehuacn. It is based on

    the work of Felipe Franco's 1946 Geographic Indonimia Puebla

    State, same as inferred from the word Teohuacan, ie instead of gods

    or the sun.(From "La Fortaleza del Cerro Colorado Tehuacan Puebla,"

    Galvez Mauricio Rosales)

    The glyph is interpreted as follows: At the bottom you can see a

    gum with teeth, which means "place". The album is a solar symbol,

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    or sacred. Hence, to be known as Tehuacn "City of Gods", "Place of

    those gods", "Place of those with God" or more currently "Sun City".

    must take into account several points. Tehuacn was not alwaysknown by that name. In the Mixtec codices alluded to Cerro

    Colorado as "Tiger Hill" or "the beast" (Yucutoaa) the existence of

    ocelots in the area or because as you know, on top of the Cerro

    Colorado hexisti an ancient fortress a temple, and ocelot had a

    sacred segnificado.

    It is not known how this hill was called popoloca possibly was called

    jna adjnchn (red hill) or jna Uxaxi (Tiger Hill).

    In Santiago Canvas Ihuitln Teyouaca mentions, represented by a hill

    town with a tiger on its summit.

    Apparently this hill gave identity to the entire population.

    In the early years of the colony, here was remarkable the many

    stone idols, destroyed by the friars, which influenced why he was

    known as "place of the gods". Furthermore, the circle of glyph is a

    sun symbol in the old context.

    The name and concept of Tehuacn has changed over time. The

    current interpretation of the word "Tehuacn" is just a contemporary

    acceptance has been made official. Even a student of the subject I

    heard the story that the original word comes not from TEO but tetl

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    (stone), but it's something I can not say for now.

    The name "City of the Sun" came as a result of the discovery of the

    ruins of an ancient ceremonial center on the slopes of Cerro

    Colorado. I guess you had to call in some way and to distinguish

    him from the current Tehuacn validates the meaning "City of the

    Sun" by the characteristics of the glyph

    Tehuacn (from Nahuatl "theo" = God, "hua" = possessive, "can" =

    Tehuacn was recognized as the first American hydromineral center

    under the slogan "Tehuacn, health city". His fame transcended

    height in the domestic market, where consumers by saying "give me

    a Tehuacn" knew distributors related to product is bottled at this


    The boom in the soft drink industry was from the forties and

    continued until the eighties, when the bottlers, mostly local and

    national entrepreneurs, became the main source of employment for

    male workers, achieving some nearby towns inhabitants emigrated

    to what was used in one of the highest paid activities and better

    The phrase "Water I ask my God" was used to adorn histrionic

    figures which represented an Indian imploring the sky the presence

    of this vital liquid that is the basis of life of ancient Mexico.

    Joaquin Historian Colin Walls, noted in his book "Historical Sketches

    of Tehuacn" that due to the permeability of the subsoil, rainwater

    and friticas that drain from the melting of the volcano Pico de

    Orizaba Citlatpetl or formed from undercurrents through the

    mountains come to feed the springs and infiltration galleries Valley.

    Without it being possible to determine the date, the Indians were

    aware of the healing properties of mineral water. "Legend collection

    by the Spanish arrival in the region, which used it to heal the liver

    and kidneys and that the emperor Moctezuma sent to bring this

    water to be used for the same purpose."

    The fact is that when the Spanish arrived in Tehuacan, Indians used

    it for medicinal purposes and, as such in colonial times followed

    exploiting the properties of these waters.

    The historian Nicetas of Zamacois, in his "General History of Mexico"

    talks about the virtues of water to cure the disease Tehuacn:

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    "Stone urine cure" broadcast this fact, thousands of people began

    arriving in Tehuacn to bathe and taking water from the springs to

    get relief from their diseases.

    Scientists have devoted their studies to corroborate the water

    properties of Tehuacn. Carlos Beristain, the Institute of Geology of

    the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), the

    Other researchers who analyzed the waters of Tehuacn, was Rafael

    Martinez Freg representing National Medical Institute in 1901

    published a booklet containing both the analysis of the waters of

    Tehuacn, his observations on the treatment of cholelithiasis with

    mineral water .

    In 1902, Dr. Eduardo Armendariz, chief of the Section of

    Experimental Physiology at the National Medical Institute published

    a book called "Study of Tehuacn Waters", which deals extensively

    with the results obtained by the treatment of gallstones through the

    use of mineral water.

    We also offer Dr. Carlos Castro, former head of the laboratory of

    Chemistry, National University, has conducted studies on water and

    has published in the pamphlet "Brief Notes on the waters of

    Tehuacn", published in 1935, where he exhibited analysis and

    studies of groundwater as the previous checking its healing

    properties, concluding that are unmatched in the treatment of

    diseases of liver and kidneys.

    From boom to financial problems

    Colin Joaquin Paredes refers in his research, which was Juan Pita

    who began bottling spring water called San Miguelito, originally

    known by the name of Coyatl, which was located at the foot of the

    plateau of El Riego, where then treated with water Red Cross

    markings and irrigation, which are mainly sold in drugstores and

    had its lead agency in a drugstore that was opposite the Teatro

    Principal in Mexico.

    In the early twentieth century, Juan Revuelta, Trinidad and Enrique

    Acosta Bonilla Angeles founded another bottling at the spring

    Axoxopan or San Lorenzo, which soon sold it to Leo Fleishman, who

    gave a strong boost and sent tanks to bottled water throughout the

    Republic in order to make it known. Deposits established

    pharmacies that used as agencies, also referred to the United States

    and Cuba, where he had a strong consumption.

    In 1914 small bottlers were established in the city. In 1915, in the

    era revolutionary, on November 13 arrived in Tehuacan Zapatista

    forces under General Mendoza, who was unable to take the city,

    retreating looted and burned the mineral water bottling plants Red

    Cross and San Lorenzo Mineral Water Co., causing their


  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    From 1918 to 1927 were established bottlers Aguilar Miguel Cacho,

    who bottled brands "Purity of Tehuacn" and "Guadalupe", Arturo

    de la Llave, marked "Llerier" Cipriano Ruiz de Aguirre, with

    "Triumph"; ngel Herrero Gonzalez, "San Rafael" Joaquin Cordova,

    with "Covadonga" Jos Garci-Crespo, with the mark of his name,

    and it was he who initiated this activity in the city and later moved

    to the auxiliary board Tetitzintla San Nicolas, where he founded the

    negotiation that after successive social reasons, was given the name

    Peafiel Springs, which is still valid today and its owners have been

    General Abelardo L. Rodriguez Monterrey VISA group, which also

    owned brands Peafiel, Balseca and Blue Label, who sold the

    company to British capital CadburySchweppes.

    In 1933, another plant that started operations in the area known as

    Calzada de Las Palmas, where the spring was "Virgin of Light", and

    soon after formed a company called "Springs El Riego" SA.

    Balseca Francisco began in 1938 the construction of the bottling

    plant where the spring is born Axoxopan or San Lorenzo, where he

    remained until 1942.

    Among other bottlers that existed is Aguas de Tehuacn, founded in

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    August 1947, located next to the railway station, in the San Lorenzo

    Exhacienda owned Balseca Product society.

    So, Tehuacn reached 1980 with the following soft drink bottlers:

    Peafiel Springs, Garci-Crespo, San Lorenzo plant 1 and 2; Balseca,

    Aguas de Tehuacn, irrigation and San Francisco.

    The competition that emerged in the domestic market with the

    arrival and strengthening of foreign companies, the first that was

    closed down Water Tehuacn, followed Garci-Crespo, Balseca, San

    Lorenzo with its two plants and finally two years ago, Springs San

    Francisco, owned by Marco Antonio Romero Balseca, all because of

    financial problems.

    Currently soft drink industries remain Peafiel Springs, irrigation and

    Bright, the latter is the only one that its owner is a native of this

    city, of the other two, the irrigation was acquired by a foreign


    High costs prevent gridlock in the place of origin

    The synergy of the globalization of trade has made several of the

    bottlers were closed. Today there are only three soft drink, the rest

    had to sell their businesses stronger groups to have the national

    and international competitive level and in this study are not very

    important marketing promote or enhance the source of that mineral

    water is the center hydromineral Latin America.

    So once you have the registration of the mark, the township will

    seek a rapprochement with local businesses to include their

    products logo slogan "Tehuacan Mineral Water" and give it the

    recognition it should get products that are bottled in the city,

    because there are cases like that not only Peafiel packaged soft

    drinks, but other brands and should not take the place of origin,

    because the product is bottled in other states for transportation


    The municipal authority will ask the companies that bottle their

    product in this city and in a glass bottle will include the origin of

    "Tehuacn mineral water."

    Their lack of presence in the market gave the same global economic

    competition that exists, that has forced businesses to be more

    competitive to survive the onslaught or global, have to enter the

    dynamic globalize their brands, because you adecuas or perish.

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    Still, Tehuacn is one of the producers of soda that appears on the

    national map as providers of first level, for the quality of its mineral

    water and because its products are recognized unlike those in other

    states have.

    Tehuacn register as a trademark, a benefit

    For the importance to have a record Tehuacn brand products made

    in the city and sold in the domestic and international market, the

    Economic Development area in the municipality initiated

    proceedings before the National Institute of Property Industrial to

    record "Agua Mineral Tehuacn" which will add value to the

    companies that bottle water in the municipality.

    Gerardo Gonzlez Ramrez, Minister of Economic Development, said

    that in some cities when they hear the word Tehuacn, thinks only

    in bottled mineral water in the city, so to take advantage of this

    positioning is looking to have the trademark as part of its heritage.


    On the significance of the soft drink industry, which has placed the

    two companies that are currently held in the domestic market, can

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    be added to local entrepreneurs engaged in the sale of mineral

    water to increase sales and promote tourism, said Canacintra

    president in Tehuacn, Germn Reyna and Herrero.

    Ensures to publicize the brand Tehuacn with support from the

    authorities and business and special features of your product, you

    can make arrangements with Peafiel and San Lorenzo, to spread its

    springs, offering visitors a tourism corridor.

    When seeking registration with the National Institute of Industrial

    Property (INPI) is looking to turn a pole Tehuacn economic

    development and usher in foreign capital.

    60 million years ago the valley of Tehuacn was sea, rocks and

    fossils are evidence of marine life.The water that flows from our

    springs Peafiel is the result of the melting of "The Holy Mountain"

    or "Pico de Orizaba" at various mileage of the water filters through

    layers of sub-soil water emerging as pure and rich in minerals

    before mineral water gushing from the region tells the story that the

    emperor Moctezuma I carried in vessels of Tehuacn mineral water

    to Tenochtitlan, to benefit from its properties.This mountain has

    remained faithful to this arises the name Pea-faithful.

    Ex Convento de San Francisco*

    The former convent of San Francisco was built

    in 1592, before this temple

    later had to move the current place for a malaria-endemic

    permanently assisted by the Franciscan friars who had to go to a

    temple and Huejotzingo convent built over an area of 10000 square

    meters at the foot of Cerro Colorado.

    In Calcahualco (Tehuacn old) began construction on a site chosen

    by the clergy themselves and who lived close to the main town and

    the road to Oaxaca and Guatemala. Twenty years later had to move

    to the current location by a malaria endemic problem had sick friars

    and the plague of ants and rattlesnakes that she was not allowed to

    In the year of 1669 in Oaxaca was founded the Convent of Our Lady

    of Mount Carmel and being forced step Tehuacn, came Carmelite

    monks and visitors. Fifty years later, he admired the deep blue sky

    and mild climate of the valley, one of the monks traveling from

    Oaxaca met with Don Juan del Moral and persuaded him to a

    Carmelite convent was founded

    It's the end of the next decade, in 1747 when Mr. del Moral had

    died, that King Philip V delivered through the Viceroy of New Spain,

    Conde de Revillagigedo, licenses and certificates authorizing the

    foundation of the Carmelite convent. Five years earlier, in 1742, the

    monks built an adobe chapel in the hospice, but apparently it was

    private property had doors that opened onto the street and for itsinauguration and blessing were major celebrations.

    Since no one is exempt from succumbing to human weaknesses the

    other religious order that was settled for nearly two hundred years,

    and which had matched the first evangelical work with the

    authorities denounced the Carmelite chapel as an open area for

    public worship. This was a curious time of jealousy between

    Carmelites and Franciscans but the issue failed because the chapel

    was deeded to the family name of Moral and was strictly a

    particular property.

    When the October 14, 1747, by legal authorization was made

    public, the heir and executor of Domingo del Moral gave Pedro de

    Teresa writing that protected an area of thirteen lots that had been

    purchased between 1730 and 1737 to complete ideal terrain for the

    convent and measured 150 and 212 yards against the background.

    Designed by Valentin fray of the Virgin, was until November 24,

    1748 when the foundation stone was laid by the Fray Nicols de

    Santa Maria, it is noted that the surface of the convent was more

    than double what is currently known, were about 20,000 square

    meters, the east came to what is now North 3rd Street.

    The paintings that adorned the convent were made by Jose Maria

    Mendoza, Mixtec, and Jos Ibez. The cost of the convent was

    seventy-five thousand dollars, not including images.

    Its architecture is Baroque Mexican typical eighteenth century, with

    a square cloister north of the church, which is one story, with two

    which appears an arc starting mixtilneo leading to the second floor

    which was the wing of the cells that faces the east and is about 55

    meters long.

    This convent carries several stories and events within which ended

    after Independence movement gave way to a fateful period for the

    country, where the convent served as a prison in which one of the

    rooms of the currently occupied by the Red Cross delegation, was

    confined Lic Benito Juarez, who was exiled by Santa Anna to Cuba, a

    plaque commemorates that event.

    The son of the founder of the Convent of Carmen, Don Joaquin del

    Moral and enthusiasm Beristain several neighbors who avocaran

    Tehuacn for the construction of an ordeal, having made the

    request on June 30, 1757. The idea was to build Calvary chapels and

    stations or of the Sacred Way, as it happens often the idea was

    greeted with more enthusiasm than the practice of providing the

    money needed to carry out the work, so your own pocket Don

    Joaquin del Moral did all expenses.

    Typical food


    The "Cactus Toro" has become a typical

    dish of the popular regional cuisine and is characteristic

    of San Cristobal Tepeteopan, auxiliary board of the Municipality

    of Tehuacan. Although its origin is unknown, its history dates back

    to prehispanic times and was named in reference to that when the

    bulls are brave, they leak thedribble, then we say that

    the cactus is brave as a bull.

    The ingredients are: Nopales Wild, which some

    call "quinhuiti", "cuicuite" or "heart"and they

    the collection of cactus andthe very stones that once

    selected, are placed over hot coals to heat up to

    hightemperatures for about an hour or

    two, while making tortillas by hand to takethe heat.

    Mole is a traditional dish of goat meat in the region of Tehuacan,

    Speaking of Tehuacn can not fail to mention the famous Donkey

    and tasty bread. Apparently this bread is from the San Jose


    The donkey bread is also made in San Sebastin Zinacatepec andeven in the city of Tehuacn. San Jose bread Miahuatln can be

    differentiated from San Sebastin bread for the following reasons:

    In San Jose Miahuatln bread is made in the traditional more. The

    preparation of the dough is entirely by hand, not using yeast in your

    recipe, which makes the bread obtained more compact, heavier and

    harder consistency than San Sebastian Zinacatepec, which are

    preferably used as mixers and yeast in your formula. As a result, the

    San Sebastian bread is fluffy and light more than San Jose, but is

  • 7/29/2019 TEHUACAN(: Maricarmen Rodguez#48




    attributed to the bread taste better than San Jose.

    A purpose of this popular mode of transportation, until half a

    century ago could still be seen on the streets of Tehuacn caravans

    and traders carrying goods brought in carts and on backs of

    donkeys. The places where camping out pack trains were called

    "Mesones", of which there is still memory in elderly people over the

    become Tehuacn typical sweet, building a regional tradition that

    has been transferred at least four generations.Born in San Martin

    Texmelucan back in 1905 according to recipes that Doa Flora

    Alvarez wrote a day that began experimenting with the flour to

    make a different kind of bread to pastries traditionally sold. Sought

    to offer their customers something different and was weaving ideas

    and applying them in practice until they came to a biscuit which he

    named mugano.At first it was round, had a cover with a light

    honey flavor anise, covered with a thin wafer of flour and diced

    fractionated to sell well. The taste was different from the traditional

    bread and cakes sold, this new cookie began to like people, and

    began to popularize in this population.

    Over the years, Mrs. Flora left his bakery "Dalia" his son Pioquinto

    Bustamante Alvarez, besides making the cakes was the "strong" to

    survive, continue with muganos, however in 1938 he decided to

    of the city and to be heard among the people proclaimed, "I'm

    already your mueganero that comes to taste, flour and egg

    muganos your brand golden eagle."

    They had this type of lighting because Tehuacn then did not have

    enough coverage in the electrical service and not so opted for the

    lanterns that had a candle inside.For taste and affordable price, the

    demand began to have muganos, the people of this city was

    gradually adopted as their own, because there was a cookie

    handcrafted out of town and that will be offered in public, but on

    everything that people liked.

    Pioquinto was how Don Bustamante in 1980 involved in this activity

    your child Facundo Bustamante Cervantes, who took as his recipe

    inherited by his grandmother, took his team to make a change in

    your presentation, rather than the cookie is round, began making
