La Casa de la Cultura
At La Casa de la Cultura we have the purpose of promoting and strengthening pride in our roots, traditions and ancestry, everything that defines us as individuals of a particular region or country. The doors are open so that any culture, tradition or customs are promoted and that it is known where we come from and those things that are part of our identity.
