🇲🇽 Querétaro, Qro., México
Querétaro is a city in central Mexico that is the capital of the state with the same name. The city has played a very important role in Mexican history, since the Independence war, where the initial conspiracy meetings to start the war took place.
In 1847, when the United States invaded Mexico City, the capital was moved to Querétaro, and it was here that the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed, which forced Mexico to cede almost half of its territory on the north in order to end the war.
It was also here where 20 years later (1867), Maximiliano de Habsburgo, who was then Emperor of Mexico, was executed by a firing squad.
It was in a theater in this city that, once the 1910 Revolution war ended, the different factions worked to create the third version of the Mexican Constitution in 1917, which is currently effective.
