Construction of the residence was started in 1526, for which the local population was employed. Cortés decided to build his residence on top of a hill, on the ruins of the lordship of Cuauhnahuac. This place had been used by the Aztecs to collect tribute, and therefore it was a symbol of Cortés' dominance over the conquered territory.
