Castilleja de la Cuesta
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Hernán Cortés died in this town on December 2, 1547. He is not buried here, as his will directed that his remains be returned to Mexico. They are interred in the Templo de Jesús, which is part of the Hospital de Jesús Nazareno in Mexico City.
Castilleja de la Cuesta has a local specialty, the "Tortas de Aceite." These are some waffle-thin "tortas" made with olive oil and having a hint of anise. They are exported to many countries, including the USA.
