Zapopan is a city in the state of Jalisco in central-western Mexico. It's name means "under the sapote trees."

The city was inhabited by the Mayans, as well as other native tribes, from about 1160, and was later inhabited by the Aztecs, who built a large number of small shrines here. Nuno de Guzman captured the area from the Aztecs in 1530, though a Spanish settlement did not begin until 1541.

Today, Zapopan is known for its basilica, its statue The Virgin of Zapopan which is believed to have worked many miracles, as an occasional pilgrimage site, and for having one of the most illustrious concert halls in Mexico, as well as a notable sports stadium.
