It is with great pleasure that the Intercultural Cities programme announces the membership of Guadalupe (Mexico).
Guadalupe was founded by Francisco de Barbadillo y Vitoria on 4 January, 1716, with the help of the indigenous population of Tlaxcalans. It covers a surface of 117.79 square kilometers, and is home to the Cerro de la Silla, a protected natural monument and world symbol of the State of Nuevo León. In the last 5 years, Guadalupe has known an increase of 60% (2,000+) of foreign immigration, mostly from the United States of America, Honduras and Venezuela and it has quickly become a city where people see opportunities to grow, make their dreams come true, and above all, have a dignified life.
By joining the Intercultural Cities programme, Guadalupe becomes the 162nd ICC member. Welcome in the family!
