The Society of Jesus came to Tepotzotlán in 1580 to be employed in the work with the Indians and founded a residence where the parents learned Otomi, Nahuatl and Mazahua. He also established the Seminary of San Martin for the education of the children of the principal Indians. Finally, he established the House of Probation so that young people who wished to enter the Society could attend the novitiate. The school was for the exclusive use of the Jesuits, while the hostelry and the temple were public spaces and the Seminary of San Martin was inhabited only by indigenous people. The property was built on a natural promontory that was used to build three levels, currently identified as access plant, ground floor and upper floor.
