Patrimonio de la Nación
En esta manzana ubicada al norte de la Catedral estuvo el convento y hospital de la orden de San Juan de Dios, institución que prestó servicios a la población bajo la administración de los frailes hasta 1821, funcionando después la Enfermeria Municipal, y sirviendo durante el Porfiriato como albergue del Seminario Conciliar. Demolido en la segunda mitad del siglo XX, sólo se conserva de todo el conjunto la Capilla de Nuestra Señora del Rosario, cuyo acceso sobre la calle 61 está enmarcado por un alfiz de piedra en forma de rosario, en alusión a la Santa Patrona, cuya imagen debió de estar en la hornacina ubicada sobre dicho alfiz.
