The Instituto Cultural Cabanas is one of the most important historical sights in Guadalajara. You must make an effort to visit this World Heritage Sights, if for no other reason than to check out the Orozco murals, considered by many experts to be his greatest works.

This neoclassical beauty and one-time orphanage is now one of the highlights of downtown Guadalajara. Beyond being architecturally interesting it also houses several lush gardens, a cultural institute, and an art museum. The highlight of the place, though, are a set of 53 murals--all created by Mexican artist Jose Clemente Orozco--depicting the struggle for freedom. Many consider these to be among his greatest works. (Don't miss the one in the cupula--you'll literally have to lay down on a bench to appreciate it.) FYI--around town, this place is known as 'Hospicio Caban~as'.

It is amazing, a lot of history it use to be a house for kids withouth parents, now it's a museum a lot of paints if u pay for a tour u can learn the story, some people thing that it's haunted by the kids that use to live there, but during the day it is great
