“Must see in Guadalajara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

The hospicio means orphanage in Spanish. This used to be , among many different uses over its LONG history, a home for poor children. RIGHT next door is the Mercado Libertad which is a must see. And near by Centro Joyero. I love visiting the Zhispicio. You are charged extra - small amt. To take ojotos but it is eorth it plus these spaces need a lot of maintenance!

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

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.
