Centro Cultural San Pablo

Arts Center in Oaxaca City

Housed in the restored Ex Convento de San Pablo (a 16th-century Dominican monastery), the impressive San Pablo Center stages concerts, films, exhibitions, classes, presentations and conferences, with an emphasis on promoting and preserving Oaxacan culture, especially its indigenous aspects.

Its research library holds valuable anthropological archives and there's a sound library with recordings of indigenous music. There's an arty little cafe within.
