Built in 1576 as the Convent of Santa Catalina de Siena, the delicate feet of nuns trod its corridors for almost three centuries. At the height of political turmoil in 1862, the nuns were ordered to abandon the convent, and their former home was turned into offices for municipal bureaucrats until 1972, which is when restoration began. The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) supervised the interior decoration. Teams of experts restored the frescoes that adorned the ancient walls. Floors were returned to their original designs and, where possible, the artistic treasures of yesteryear were repaired. No two rooms are identical in the Camino Real Oaxaca, but all of them offer modern comforts against a Spanish colonial backdrop.
