The 6 of December of 1534 the Act of Foundation of San Francisco of Quito was signed, this in honor to the conqueror Francisco Pizarro. At the top of the new inhabitants is captain Sebastian de Benalcazar, once the muleteer Sebastian Moyano. Under the European architectonic logic, the city in grid form draws up. And one of the lots that reserve for the residence of the Benalcazar founder gave to the edges of the town.
