The Cultural Center / Old Jesuit College in Pátzcuaro



The Cultural Center / Old Jesuit College, also known as the Ex Colegio Jesuita in Pátzcuaro, is a place to enjoy culture, and in the context of a lovely 16th century building.

This “College of the Society of Jesus” was the second of its kind that was established in “New Spain,” after the first one in Mexico City.  It was built in what was the orchard of what would become the Cathedral of Michoacán (now the Basílica).
