At that time a series of villages on the western wall began to collapse, given the arrival of many noble families who began to buy land for building villas and palaces near the new power center. The viability was completely influenced by the viceroy decisions, where they wanted to trace the starting line of Via Toledo and settled via Santa Lucia.
