Santa Inés Convent

Désolé, cet article est seulement disponible en Anglais Américain et Espagnol Mexicain.

Santa Inés ConventThe convent of Conceptionist nuns of Santa Inés opened in 1600 and housed 33 professed nuns, one for each year of Christ's life on Earth. The monastery was also inhabited by maids, "donated women," slaves, educated girls, widows, and relatives of the nuns, forming a complex universe of women. On February 13, 1861 the nuns were expelled from the building, and four years later it became a barracks. In 1992, the convent was restored to house the José Luis Cuevas Museum still in operation today.
