It is considered one of the most outstanding examples of the Baroque style of the Viceregal architecture of the 18th century. For its construction were employed materials of the time, such as tezontle and quarry stone; it stood as the only private residence with four floors of the New Spain in 18th century.

The house is one of the most elevated samples of the Mexican architecture of the 18th century; its construction began towards 1779, it was in charge of the New Spanish architect Francisco de Guerrero y Torres, main exponent of the architecture of that century. On 1931 it was declared National Monument; on 1964 was acquired and restored by the National Bank of Mexico, and since 1971 is the headquarters of Banamex Cultural Encouragement.
