La Vecindad (El patio)

La Vecindad is the fictional neighborhood setting of Lego El Chavo, and a miniature model of the original vecindad from El Chavo del Ocho.


La vecindad was first constructed in about 1867 as Le Fort d'DuBeau, in Spanish it is called La Contrafuerte de Dubó, one of the strongholds for the French army. After the French fled from Mexico, the fort was given to Gen. Philipe DuBeau's wife, whom had recently widowed. However she sold it during the Porfiriato, and it was later bought by Coronel Villegas Mendoza, a revolutionary. After the Mexican Revolution, Villegas Mendoza destroyed the original documents to the property. The fort remain in discretion, and its history from then on was that Coronel Villegas Mendoza had acquired it from a rich hacendado. In the 1940s, it was bought by Don Nerón Barriga Espeso who passed it down to his son Zenón Barriga Bola, it's current title holder.
