Templo y Convento de Carmelitas
La hermana María Magdalena del Espíritu Santo, fundó un beaterio para doncellas pobres desamparadas. Su ejemplo hizo que ingresaran las sobrinos del Br. Don Diego Colchado, quien donó el inmueble en que se construyeron el templo y el convento.
El Excmo. Cardenal Lorenzana, arzobispo de México, estableció aquí el colegio de enseñanza para niñas, que mediante cédula del 7 de junio de 1781, se convirtió en Colegio Real.
En 1800, se autorizó la construcción de un nuevo templo y mejores viviendas, costeados por el síndico del Colegio, Don Juan Antonio Jáuregui y Urrutia, Marques del Villar del Aguila. La dedicación tuvo lugar el 20 de julio de 1802.
