in detail

It was a property of the nuns of the Conception in the colonial era in Mexico. The building is composed of the Church of Regina Coeli, with free entrance; the former convent where private events are held and which consists of the Patio de los Naranjos, Patios de San Jerónimo and the Jardín de la Estampa; and the Hospital Concepción Béistegui.

Although this property has some monastic sobriety, the altarpieces and paintings from the chapel, which have been the subject of studies by specialists in colonial art, stand out. In 1863 the nuns were defrocked and the property nationalized. In 1867, President Juárez gave the property to the army. The last owner was Concepción Béistegui who modified the place to become a hospital.

Outside this building, the square of the same name is located, in which you will find several shops, restaurants and bars where a bohemian atmosphere prevails. In the sixteenth century it was known as Plaza Chiquita de Regina.
