My wife and I saw the two exhibitions, one about Garcilaso de la Vega, and the other about Saint Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and interesting. We enjoyed the exhibitions very much and learned a lot.

A small little garden you can walk around with a museum on the USA Mexican wars and a cafe at the end. Lovely to sit and take in the atmosphere.
