We went on a tour of the museum with a guide who was very knowledgable and gave lots of historical information about the Manzana Jesuita , we saw antique book and map collections amongst other artefacts.

It is the best place where you can understand how the town was born and how it became a study centre as the second university ever built in America,north and south. Strenght and clear design of Jesuits can be appreciated. Ask for local guide.
