Alfonsine Chapel


This is a library from the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon (UANL).

According to their website, it's called “Chapel” for being a sanctuary for culture, literature and knowledge.

The other part of the name, “Alfonsine”, its dedicated to Alfonso Reyes who is one of the most outstanding Regios (that's the name given to people born in Monterrey) in history and whose personal library is inside the building.
