The San Agustin Arts Center (CASA) was opened in 2006 as the first ecological arts center in Latin America. Its mission is to serve as a space for artistic teaching, creation and experimentation. CASA was one of the many art-culture projects Francisco Toledo created and established. For one hundred years prior, this site operated as a textile factory, which was founded in 1883. Inside the renovated space, you will find beautifully designed reflective pools (used for cooling), two large temporary exhibition areas, a smaller art gallery space, and gorgeous grounds to explore local flowers and trees including the local “pochote tree” with a tremendous view of Etla.
After your time at CASA, you will take a break and maybe grab a coffee in a local cafe.
