In 1530, upon the arrival of the Spanish explorers sent by Nuño de Guzmán under the command of Cristóbal de Oñate, they were received hostilely. In any case, the conquering incursions discovered hot springs and mineral deposits. 

The official foundation of the city took place on October 22, 1575 with the name of Villa de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de las Aguas Calientes. 


Finally, in 1857 the territory became the free and sovereign state of Aguascalientes.

In colonial times, it was a town of deshilados. Thanks to this activity Aguascalientes became a city with worldwide recognition for women, what stands out most of this activity is the wonderful result of their imagination and the work of their hands. 
In the 20th century the women were the ones who embroidered the same dress and embroidery with which they danced, and these women were different from the other dancers because they made their dresses by themselves so there was no dress exactly the same in the whole dance, also the dresses of these ladies were very striking and full of details.
