The main building of the hacienda was built in 1707. By the end of the
18th century, the owner of the property was Pedro Antonio de Septién
Montero y Austri, son of Agustín de Septién y Montero, from León,
Guanajuato. Pedro Antonio moved from
Querétaro in his
youth and became Alférez Real of the city for almost 37 years. He was
also dean and mayor on many occasions. Pedro Antonio died in December
In the 19th century, the hacienda was bought by Timoteo Fernández de
Jáuregui, who later sold it to Bernabé Loyola. This last one sold
the property to Francisco Contreras and finally was bought by José
Mario Romero, a wealthy businessman from nearby San Juan del Río.
The hacienda was finally transformed into a hotel in 1992.

Juriquilla has always been known as a residential area. A ten-minute
drive from downtown puts
Juriquilla far enough to avoid the city
common problems, such as traffic jams but close enough to enjoy all of
the city's advantages. During the last decade,
Juriquilla has slowly
been recognized as an investment opportunity area, due to the prices
of the land and the arrival of many people from
Mexico City. However,
Juriquilla's population has grown enough as to suffer from traffic
problems when inhabitants leave their homes for their jobs, which are
usually in Santiago de
Querétaro or El Marqués, or when they return
