Casa del Mendrugo Museum is located in a large historic building in the downtown district of Puebla, once part of Saint Jerome Jesuit College, the first Jesuit College.
And named, according to historians, after the “Mendrugos” (pieces of bread or alms) that the Jesuits received from the parishioners for their support. By the end of the 20th century, its existence as a neighborhood icon ended when it was abandoned and fell into ruins.
Thanks to the vision and commitment of a local philanthropist and entrepreneur, in 2008 the restoration of the house was begun.
