Biblioteca Gabino Ortíz Villaseñor

Biblioteca Pública Gabino Ortiz Villaseñor is a public library set in a 19th-century building. The interior is decorated with 10 murals, the work of José Clemente Orozco. Its door is also a work of art, with 22 notable men from the Americas carved in wood, created by the sculptor Guillermo Ruiz. 

Originally, the library was going to be a religious building. The structure itself dates from the 19th century and was created in the neo-Gothic style. The entrance commemorates famous figures from Spanish-American literature in a series of metal busts.
