Biblioteca Iberoamericana "Octavio Paz"
In a previous post we talk about a caracter that asists to the Iberoamerican Library and I didn't want to leave it just as a portrait.
This building was in the beginning the Jesuit School of Santo Tomás de Aquino in 1591. In 1792 was established here the first seat of the University of Guadalajara.Its dome was painted by the artists David Alfaro Siqueiros and Amado de la Cueva and in 1991 was opened as the Octavio Paz Iberoamerican Library.
