5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Frescos and tour guide. It's history too. Hardly anyone there at the time which made it even more special.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

A great place to visit, full of culture. It's a must go.
The convent itself is gorgeous and the paintings inside are a wonder.

“Must see the murals at Instituto Cultural Cabanas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The Instituto Cultural Cababas has beautiful art of disturbing scenes. Recommended viewing is to lay on the benches to take in the ceiling murals. Then tour the galleries and courtyards for even more culturally important artworks. The architecture is also gorgeous.

This one thing in Guadalajara you CANT miss. A guide (from the Instituto) will show you more than 10 books.

“ONE OF THE "MUST SEE" IN GUADALAJARA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Largest colonial building in Iberoamerica. Really well kept. Part of seeing downtown. It is really Majestic. Of course you will not see this only, you also need to see the theater, the market next to it, ans of course the Cathedral. You really should see it! and take some time to have a coffee or lunch/dinner on this part of town.
