The first Escalera in Mexico City that i have record is in the year 1620 , i do not know if did arrive from Espain or Puerto Rico wich is another Coutry with 100s of Escaleras.
Aguascalientes has about the 70% of the Escaleras in Mexico Durango,Sanluis Potosi and Michoacan are also the estates with 1000s of Escaleras.
