The only derivative religious institution of Santo Domingo that existed in Pátzcuaro was this one. A convent was established halfway trough the 18th century in the place that belonged according to was the hospital of Santa Marta. This house exhibits great splendor. It boasts capitals, arches, richly carved architraves, with keystones in its center. In addition it contains a highly interesting bath, with an extremely rich Baroque portal. This bath is of incomparable value if we take into account the scarcity of places designed for this use in those days. This is a beautiful and elegant building, perhaps the most evocative in Pátzcuaro. At present, the edifice houses the shops and studios of many regional artisans. A visit is very important if you want visit with the artisans as they produce their beautiful crafts.
