Jalpan de Serra
Jalpan is derived from the Náhuatl word meaning “place on sand”. Its initial settlers, the Olmec, were outnumbered by the Pame civilization in the 13th century. This was the first town to be evangelized by the missionaries when friars Junípero de Serra and Francisco Palou arrived and undertook the task of converting the mountain people and integrating them into society.
