Palace Hernán Cortés in Cuernavaca

<< previous homenext >>

Hernan Cortes's palace: Hernán Cortés began construction of this palace after the fall of Tenochtitlan to protect the tributes that had been previously collected by the Aztecs. Construction was completed in 1535, and is the oldest work of civil architecture in Mexico, built upon the remains of a Tlahuica temple. It was turned into a jail in the 1700s, and José María Morelos was imprisoned here in 1815. In the late 19th century it was used as a government building, and today it houses the Museo Cuauhnáhuac. Two floors of exhibits highlight the history and culture of Mexico, featuring several prominent pre-Hispanic cultures, including Aztec, Maya, Olmec, Xochilimilca, Chalcha and Tlahuica.
