Cabañas is the most important cultural site in Guadalajara. The place is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. José Clemente Orozco was, perhaps, the best Mexican muralist painter. He is magnificent. Ask for a guide in order to understand it better. And there are frequent temporary exhibitions, mostly from very good, world class artists. And a good store.

Amazing historical murals by one of Mexico´s famous muralists (Jose Clemente Orozco), in a beautiful building, that amazingly, used to be an orphanage. Try to wait for the guided tour, which is incredible in the amount of detail presented regarding the symbolism in the paintings. Not sure if there are english language tours though... And be prepared, these murals are from a strongly socialistic period of Mexican history. Go with an open mind...
