Regarding Birthplace of Salvador Díaz Mirón. Salvador Díaz Mirón (December 14, 1853 - June 12, 1928), was a Mexican poet, known as a pioneer of modernism. He worked as a journalist and teacher. As a politician, he was an opposition congressman during the time of Porfirio Díaz, whom he later supported, even in the celebration of the Centennial of Independence of 1910, where he praised him in a poem.
