The church of Santa María Tonantzintla was declared a historical monument on November 11, 1933; It has four constructive stages that go from s. XVII to XX. It has a simple façade that seems not to announce the profusion of elements that are inside, presenting sculptures of clear indigenous manufacture in three niches at the front, and four in the tower, representing the evangelists carrying the message of God to the four directions.

It has the prerogative of being the first sumptuous temple that under good designs was made in America, consecrated in 1649 it went ahead to the Metropolitan of Mexico that was dedicated in 1653.
The chapel of the Virgen del Rosario is the chapel attached to the Temple of Santo Domingo in the city of Puebla, Mexico.

For more than 360 years, the Palafoxiana Library, has been based in the Old College of San Juan within the Seminary founded by Palafox and Mendoza. Although the construction of the vault, as it is in our days was made in 1773, by Bishop Francisco Fabián y Fuero, who ordered the first two floors of the bookshelf to be erected, which is a fine work of the New Spain cabinetmakers They worked harmoniously the woods of ayacahuite, polocote and cedar. From this period dates the delicate altarpiece where the effigy of the Madonna of Trapani is located, oil that is presumed to be made taking as a model the sculpture that Nino Pisano made of the Virgin in the 14th century. Later, in the nineteenth century, a third level was placed because the number of volumes that were in the library had increased, 4 in fact the library has 45 058 old books.
