Escuela de Bellas Artes information
This beautiful former monastery of La Concepción church was converted into a fine-arts school in 1938 and still offers courses. Don't miss the murals of Pedro Martínez, plus the Siqueiros Room, which features the extraordinary unfinished mural by David Alfaro Siqueiros (it plays with your mind – we won't spoil the surprise). The rest of the gallery holds temporary exhibitions. At the time of research, the wonderful auditorium was about to reopen; ask about performances.
