Hospital de Jesús Nazareno
This is the first and longest serving hospital constructed on the American continent, which has been serving the needs of the sick and ailing since 1524. Originally called the Hospital de la Purísima Concepción de Nuestra Señora (Hospital of Our Lady of the Purest Conception), it was built with the economic support of conquistador Hernan Cortes, so as to serve the needs of poor Spanish soldiers and Native Americans. New installations were added in the mid-twentieth century, of a different architectural appearance, but using the same materials as the original construction. It is worth visiting for its sixteenth century stone arches and the mural by Orozco that depicts the encounter between the Spaniards and Native Americans.
