ABOUT Ex-Hacienda de San Pedro Martir, Coyoacán
Located in the wonderful neighborhood of Coyoacán, Mexico City. The Ex Hacienda de San Pedro Mártir goes back to the time of the Spanish conquest. It belonged to one of the captains of the conqueror of Mexico Hernán Cortez Pizarro. The first writing of which only copies are kept, is in Nahuatl, and the property original has suffered numerous fragmentations in four centuries. The verbal tradition says that during the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the forces of Venustiano Carranza quartered in the Church of San Juan Bautista, from the Barrio de Coyoacán, and fought against the forces of Emiliano Zapata, whose barracks was in San Pedro Mártir. These clashes caused people living in the middle to draw white handkerchiefs as a symbol of peace.
Years later in 1923, the teacher Alfredo Ramos Martínez, founded in Hull of the Hacienda the "School of Outdoor Painting", which I shelter and form artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Mardonio Magaña. Later, during the seventies, the Treasury was divided into three parts.
