Saltillo

One of the outstanding neighboring buildings of the cathedral, is this building that dates from the eighteenth century, home to a library with more than 13 thousand volumes from the 17th to 19th century, almost all specialized in the history of Mexico donated by Alessio Robles and Oscar Davila, recognized inhabitants of Saltillo.

Although one of the most curious facts about this building is that it served at some time as the first seminary where the first priests of this locality were formed, although later it was transformed into la Primera Presidencia Municipal de Saltillo (“The First Municipal Presidency of Saltillo”) and the rooms that belonged to the seminarians were conditioned to be cells where the criminals of the city slept.

This old house, also located on Hidalgo Street, belonged to the Sánchez Galindo family and is now one of the most renowned places in Saltillo since it has been transformed into the cultural house par excellence with its two galleries for exhibitions.

It also has an auditorium and a patio that have been the stage for different kinds of shows and presentations.
