"Códice de la grana cochinilla" presents an analysis of unpublished documents that were preserved among the papers of the Asturian nobility, known as "Codex of the grana cochineal" or "Relation of places". The second work describes the mode of production of Mesoamerican dye, which was of great importance in the Modern Age. The first contains a quantitative and qualitative description of the number of nopales in which the cochineal insect (the source of the dye) was bred in four villages in the Puebla valley: Cholula, Huexotzinco, Calpan, and Tetzmelucan.
