Instituto Cultural Cabanas, Guadalajara

(4.8/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Named a World Heritage Site in 1997, Instituto Cultural Cabanas was built in the 19th-century as refuge for at-risk people. The building was unique at the time in its attempt to accommodate these people--from the handicapped to the orphaned. Designed to be on one level for ease of movement for its occupants, the complex was founded in 1791. Today you can wander the courtyards and corridors, taking in some of the finest examples of Mexican art in murals painted by José Clemente Orozco.
