Tlalpan Culture House

It is located a few steps away from the entrance of the Tlalpan forest, where people go to work out. The facade is from the early XX century, and it used to be known as Casa de las Bombas, settled then in the Condesa neighborhood.

It was designed by Alberto J. Pani and has aquatic motifs like snails, turtles, snakes and mermen. In the middle of the vault you can find a Neptune sculpture. In 1975, the sculpture was moved piece by piece to its current location, that one time Pedro Ramírez Vázquez was the architect in charge.

This compound hosts the Young Orchestra of Tlalpan, and it counts with an art gallery, a forum with capacity for 120 people and a first floor equipped with classrooms in which art workshops are imparted.
