Welcome to Guadalupe
About 10km east of Zacatecas, Guadalupe boasts a fascinating historic former monastery, the Convento de Guadalupe. The Convento was established by Franciscan monks in the early 18th century as an apostolic college. It developed a strong academic tradition and was a base for missionary work in northern Nueva España until the 1850s. It is now the excellent Museo Virreinal de Guadalupe, the reason for travelers to come here.
