Casa Vieja, the newest addition to the Hotel Posada del Hidalgo in El Fuerte, is believed to have been the original site of "El Zorro's" (AKA Don Diego de la Vega) house.
Constructed during the 17th and 18th centuries in the city of El Fuerte de Motesclaros, was the first Spanish garrison in the area. It was strategically placed in front of the old fort, both of which were erected on the Carapoa Hill. The older garrison did not reflect its current façade. It was actually more of a stone compound with small, iron doors with bars in the front. It was used to confine the enemies of the Spanish Crown from 1650 to 1750.
When the Spanish authorities of El Fuerte decided to shut down the garrison, construction was resumed by Don Alejandro de la Vega at the end of the 18th century, who remodeled the fort into a mansion.
