Tlalnepantla de Baz
Travel Guide

The bustling streets of this modern region of Greater Mexico City are built around the time-honored relics of colonial, pre-Hispanic and pre-Aztec landmarks.

The city and municipality of Tlalnepantla de Baz extends north of Mexico City, encompassing some of the region’s most notable ancient relics within its limits. Experience Tlalnepantla de Baz's modern flair as you stroll down the city’s streets and delve into the region’s rich history when you explore monasteries, pyramids and aqueducts. The name Tlalnepantla is derived from the Náhuatl words for “middle land,” while “la Baz” was added in honor of the Mexican Revolution politician and soldier, Gustavo Baz Prada.

Explore central Tlalnepantla de Baz and check out its grand boulevards and avenues. Mundo E is a popular shopping mall, while Real de Catorce comes alive in the evening with its authentic Mexican cuisine and live entertainment. Find out about Tlalnepantla de Baz’s intriguing historical landmarks when you visit the Corpus Christi church and monastery. The Mexicas and the Otomies built the structures from pink-and-gray stone and their influence can be seen in the detailing of the Porciúncula side gate.

See the heritage estates Hacienda de Enmedio and the Museo Hacienda de Santa Mónica. Discover a collection of over 130 photographs that depict Tlalnepantla de Baz between the late 1800s and the mid-20th century at the Centro Cultural Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

Discover the region’s rich history when you explore archaeological relics. Tenayuca and Santa Cecilia Acatitlán are beautifully preserved Aztec pyramids that elevate ancient temples. Check out the museum at the Tenayuca archaeological park and learn about the site’s history and cultural significance. Santa Cecilia Acatitlán is a reconstruction, as the original pyramid was demolished to make the Santa Cecilia Parish Church. Learn about pre-Hispanic sculpture at the Herpes Museum.

Tlalnepantla de Baz is a 45-minute drive north of central Mexico City. Reach the municipality via Mexico City’s public transit system within an hour. The city has a range of accommodations and dining options. For an in-depth insight into fascinating history a short distance from Mexico’s capital city, venture to Tlalnepantla de Baz.

I was charged for parking, which I thought was included. When I asked the front desk they said that was an Expedías problem. Parking in and out turned out to be an unexpected event.
