___ Satellite View and Map of the City of Tegucigalpa (Tegus)
Searchable Map and Satellite View of Tegucigalpa using Google Earth DataSatellite view is showing Tegucigalpa, largest city and since 1880 the national capital of Honduras.
The city is located in the southern-central highland region of Honduras on a deforested mountain basin at the foot of Picacho hill.
The Choluteca river crosses the city from south to north separating Tegucigalpa and its sister city Comayagüela. Tegucigalpa and Comayagüela together form Hondura's Central District (Distrito Central), the governing body of the nation.
The colonial city was founded by Spanish settlers in the late 16th century. The Dolores Church (1735), the San Miguel Cathedral (1765), the Casa de la Moneda (1780), and the Immaculate Conception Church (1788) were some of the first important buildings constructed.
Today Tegucigalpa has a population of about 1.2 million inhabitants in its metropolitan area. Official language is Spanish.
The capital's infrastructure has not kept pace with the population growth. Deficient urban planning, a densely condensed urbanization, and poverty are ongoing problems not only in the city. The current road infrastructure is unable to efficiently handle the almost half a million vehicles which wreak havoc on a daily basis.
The city is home to the National Autonomous University of Honduras , the country's most important university, a Natural History Museum, a Numismatic Museum and the Central Bank of Honduras.
