Quinta Real Oaxaca. Built in 1576 as the Convent of Santa Catalina de Siena, the delicate feet of nuns trod its corridors for almost three centuries. At the height of political turmoil in 1862, the nuns were ordered to abandon the convent, and their former home was turned into offices for municipal bureaucrats until 1972, which is when restoration began. The National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) supervised the interior decoration. Teams of experts restored the frescoes that adorned the ancient walls. Floors were returned to their original designs and, where possible, the artistic treasures of yesteryear were repaired. No two rooms are identical in the Camino Real Oaxaca, but all of them offer modern comforts against a Spanish colonial backdrop. One of the most representative patios, Los Lavaderos (The Washtubs), is located on the northwestern corner of the grounds. It consists of stone tubs within a fountain carved in octagonal form with a dome, and is considered to be one of the most ingenious hydraulic systems of the colonial era. The water flows from the center of the fountain toward the 12 tubs, maintaining a constant level at all times. In this ancient building each guest room is different from all the others, but all provide modern comforts within a colonial setting.
