Convent of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Convento de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe

This forms a part of Jardín Juarez. The Convent of Our Lady of Guadalupe was founded in 1707 by Fray Antonio Margil de Jesús, who belonged to the Order of Friars Minor, which was dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe. This was the most important school of Christian faith on the American continent in the 18th century.

On its red quarry stone facade, you will notice a high relief of Saint Francis of Assisi, holding a replica of the Virgin of Guadalupe. This atrium is a replica of the one in the Apostolic School of Queretaro.
