Museo Regional Potosino information
This fetching museum was originally part of a Franciscan monastery founded in 1590. The ground floor – part of which is housed in the small Capilla de San Antonio de Padua – has exhibits on pre-Hispanic Mexico, especially the indigenous people of the Huasteca. Upstairs is the lavish, gold and aqua Capilla de Aranzazú , an elaborate private chapel constructed in the mid-18th century in Churrigueresque style. New monks were ordained here.
