Archeological Site settlement was first settled
by the local native tribe of Matlazinca who occupied local
valley of Malinalco. After Aztecs under reign of Axayacatl
conquered the area and subdued its people in 1476 they started
construction of a new city. Original city quickly grew in size
and complexity. Most of the buildings that you see today date to
the Aztec period in the early 16th century when emperor
Ahuitzotl ruled the expansive empire.
