Former Jesuit School

The former Jesuit school in Alagón, built in baroque style between the 17th and 18th centuries, is an architectural ensemble of great historical and artistic importance. Originally part of the Society of Jesus, this building housed both educational and religious activities. It stands out for its brick and stone masonry, as well as for its sober stone façade crowned by the coat of arms of the Hispanic monarchy. In addition, the presence of a mural painting attributed to Francisco de Goya, entitled “The Exaltation of the Name of Jesus”, at the top of the main staircase, adds a remarkable artistic value to this structure.

Currently, the former Jesuit school houses the Casa de la Cultura de Alagón and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Hispano-Mexicano. Its transformation into a cultural space reflects the adaptation of old religious institutions to new uses and contexts. The preservation of the original architecture, along with the incorporation of Goya’s work, highlights its importance both as a historical heritage site and as a dynamic cultural center in the community of Alagón.
