The architectural compound to which this building belongs also houses the Community Museum, the Temple of San Francisco, the Temple of the Virgin of Solitude and the Open Chapel. It was the first convent ever founded in Michoacán, between the 16th and 17th centuries. The architecture stands out for its plateresque and baroque style, in addition to the Muslim influence.

Inside the place there is a garden named Atrium of the Olive trees in which you can find 56 of these trees. According to the tradition, those Olive trees where brought from Spain and planted by Tata Vasco himself.
