This photo, taken in 2003 shows how incredibly old Aguascalientes is.
Here's a brief history of the city's origins: "The Villa de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de las Aguas Calientes was founded on October 22, 1575 mainly to protect and shelter the travelers who were heading to Mexico from Zacatecas. Today this tradition of hospitality continues with modern facilities in communications, hotels and restaurants." If you'd like more details then click here.
