Given that “caltzontzin” was the title of the ruler of the Purépecha people, this theater’s name could be translated as “Emperor Emperor.” While not opulent, one could easily picture an emperor or two enjoying a show inside.
The Emperador Caltzontzin Theater is crafted into a former convent that belonged to the same 16th century Augustine complex as the Gertrudis Bocanegra Library. In 1672 the building underwent its first transformation, as it became the Hospital de Indios (Indians’ Hospital).
