 Ex Convento de Nuestra Señora del Tránsito o de La Mejorada
Patrimonio de la NaciónEste conjunto tiene su origen en una construcción franciscana del Siglo XVII, conjunto que se desarrolló en dos etapas: primero la iglesia (1640) y posteriormente el convento (1688-1694). En 1861, con la aplicación de las Leyes de Reforma, el convento se destinó a hospital, y más tarde, en 1907, para sede de la Escuela de Artes y Oficios. Más tarde fue alojamiento de las familias de los soldados de la tropa asignada al Cuartel de Dragones, y desde 1975 es sede de la Facultad de Arquitectura. El contexto urbano que se
desarrolló alrededor de este conjunto conventual tomó el nombre de Barrio de La Mejorada, y durante el auge henequenero de Yucatán entre los siglos XIX y XX, albergó los principales corchaderos o desfibradoras, así como talleres y equipamiento de apoyo a las haciendas henequeneras. English:Former Convent dedicated to Our Lady of Transit o de La MejoradaNational HeritageThis compound of structures was built by the Franciscan's in the XVII century in two stages, beginning with the



Church (1640) and later the Convent (1688-1694). In 1861, as a result of Reforma Law, the convent was used as a hospital, then later hosted the School of Arts and Apprenticeship. Then, it was used as a living facility for family members of military assigned to Dragons Military Base. Since 1975 it has been hosting the Architecture School. The set of buildings and streets surrounding the area is called
Barrio de La Mejorada (De la Mejorada neighborhood). During the henequen period in Yucatan, between the XIX and XX century, it served as a hub of industry supporting the needs of henequen haciendas.
