The Former Jesuit College Of San Luis Gonzaga In Zacatecas, Mexico

The outstanding Museo Pedro Coronel is named for the local painter and sculptor who died in 1985 leaving behind an art collection that's now housed in a 17th century mansion which used to be the Jesuit, St. Gonzaga College. The museum is impressive for its big names (Picasso, Chagall, Miró), its diversity (art from Tibet, Africa, Nepal, and pre-Hispanic Mexico) and its humility.
