It was built by the request of some nuns, who were concerned about the city's drinking water supply. According to the legend, Don Juan Antonio de Urrutia y Arana was the one who financed most of the construction and did it because he was in love with a nun, who asked him to do it.

A very peculiar place in the city, and likewise with a history inside, is the "Casa de la Zacatecana Museum", located at the Historical Center. The story is about the woman who lived in this house: She had sent to kill her husband and then killed the executioner of the murder by burying them both in the stables.

Later on, the woman was stabbed at her own house, but it was never known who the author of the revenge was.

In later years, the families that tried to inhabit the old house, could not stay in it because they were victims of constant fright and apparitions.

Currently, you can see various pieces of art, furniture, watches, ceramic and glass works in the museum, as well as knowing the story of the Zacatecana.
