And this building is the Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso.
It was built in 1588, and first belonged to the Jesuists.
It was used for many purposes, and in 1910
it passed on to Universidad Autonoma de México, the state
university. The university also has high schools
and this became Preparatoria No. 1. High School number 1.
My husband studied his high school here. In 1992 it became a museum.
A few years ago we saw a great Botello exposition.

I'm back home after a safe trip. Tomorrow, more downtown photos. Good night.
