On July 20, 1947, rock guitar god Carlos Augusto Alves Santana was born in the city of Autlán de Navarro, in the state of Jalisco in Mexico. The son of Jose Santana, a well-known Mariachi violinist, and Josephina, Carlos learned to play the violin when he was five years old.

Although the family moved to Tijuana in 1955, there is a plaza in Autlán (with a statue) dedicated to Carlos Santana.

Autlán de Navarro had a population of 53,269 in 2005. The word "Autlán" comes from the Nahuatl language and roughly means "next to the water ditch."
