  The heroic city of Cuautla, second in importance in the State of Morelos in Mexico, is located in a fertile lowland. Cuautla is an example of the present and the past, here, you will see history unfold throughout its streets, buildings and monuments. Due to its natural thermal springs and beautiful landscapes, Cuautla is also known as "The City of Hot Springs", with Agua Hedionda being a prime attraction.

During the colonial period Cuautla was part of the domain of the Marquees of the Valley of Oaxaca. In 1546, the Santo Domingo convent was established and the evangelization of this town began.

The Independence war from February 19th to May 2nd, and the troops lead by Jose Maria Morelos, left an unforgettable track in the inhabitant's pride and street names owe their origin to this historical event.
