Palace of the Inquisition and its collection

Palace of the Inquisition

The Palace of the Inquisition stands on the corner of República de Brasil and República de Venezuela streets in Mexico City , Mexico . As neither side of the building faces Santo Domingo Plaza, the entrance is placed at a canted corner to face the plaza. Its long association with the Inquisition , which ended during the Mexican War of Independence , made it difficult to convert to other purposes. However, it eventually became the School of Medicine for the reconstructed National University (now the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)). When UNAM moved to the Ciudad Universitaria in the 1950s, it retained ownership of this building, eventually converting the structure in what is today the Museum of Mexican Medicine .
