Lonely Planet review
The Casa de la Cultura occupies a low-lying Spanish structure that dates back to the 18th century. The building at one point served as the residence of President Alfredo González Flores, who governed from 1913 to 1917. It is beautifully maintained and now houses permanent historical displays as well as rotating art exhibits.
