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 "torta de aceite". This is a thin, crisp baked good made with olive oil and having a hint of anise. They are eaten throughout Spain and exported to many countries, including the USA.
