Discover the Quinta Real Oaxaca, which was originally founded as the Convent of Santa Catalina in 1576.

Quinta Real Oaxaca was constructed between the 14th and 17th centuries, in which novel approaches to art and science spread throughout Europe.

Built in 1576, Quinta Real Oaxaca was originally the Convent of Santa Catalina until the mid-18th century when the nuns were forced to leave due to political strife. The location was used as offices for municipal bureaucrats until restoration on the building began in 1972. While a team of experts restored the frescoes on the historic walls, The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) oversaw the interior decorations, including flooring and various ancient treasures. As a result, no two rooms are identical at Quinta Real Oaxaca, while it still maintains a Spanish-Colonial style.
