Abstract
El desarrollo urbanístico de América durante la época virreinal ha sido muy estudiado en los últimos años. Frente a las características genéricas cada día aparecen más excepciones acordes con los lugares de asiento y con los grupos sociales que se integran. Las denominadas ciudades de españoles o administrativas en México constituyen modelos claros de estructuras ortogonales que crearon, a su vez, una red de control del territorio. El análisis de estos enclaves, basándonos en documentos como las Relaciones Geográficas de Felipe II constituye el objetivo de este texto.--------------------------------------------------------------------The urbanistic development of America, during the viceregal period, has been vastly studied in recent years. Regardless of the generic characteris tics, every day exceptions appear according with the seats and the social groups present there. The so called cities for the Spaniards or administrations in Mexico (New Spain), represent clear models of orthogonal structures which generated a net for territorial control. The analysis of these enclaves based upon documents, such as the Relaciones Geográficas de Felipe II, constitute the main objective of this text.
