Visit: Instituto Cultural Cabanas, Calle Paseo Hospicio 8 Colonia Centro, Guadalajara 44100 Mexico

Visit the wonders of Hospicio Cabañas in Guadalajara, Jalisco, named a World Heritage Site and one of the oldest and largest hospital buildings in America.

Founded by the Bishop of Guadalajara around 1791, and created with the purpose of serving as a workhouse, hospital, orphanage, and almshouse, this building owes its name to Juan Ruiz de Cabañas.

Manuel Tolsá, a renowned architect from Mexico City, was commanded to design the structure. His designed was based on Parisian and Madrilenian works considered now classics, such as Les Invalides and El Escorial.

The single storey building has a rectangular structure which chapel has a dome rising to 32.5 metres. The complex is erected on one level in order to aid the mobility of the sick, the aged, and children.

The construction didn't finish until 1829, and during this time, the building served as barracks, and then went back to its original purpose of being a hospital until 1980, when the affiliated schools of arts and crafts belonging to the Cabañas Cultural Institute, moved in.

Inside the building you'll find several monumental frescoes done by José Clemente Orozco, including one of his most famed creations, "Alegoría del Hombre en Llamas". Due to its cultural importance, Hospicio Cabañas was named a Unesco World Heritage site in 1997.
