This peaceful and deeply spiritual oasis is dedicated to pilgrimages and studies of the faithful, specifically the Spiritual Exercises as defined by Ignacio of Loyola. This development was connected to the same energy and introspection that inspired the Baroque art movement, and the whole cloister reflects that time period. As early as the 1580s, Jesuits and other Catholic clergy were practicing the exercises as set forth by the San Ignacio in Mexico. The Sanctuary was built in the 1700s, and during holidays it hosts retreats in which anyone can participate.
