Centro Cultural y Social Hidalguense


The Centro Cultural y Social Hidalguense is a Cultural and Social Center originally for people from Hidalgo state, north and east of Mexico City. Today it’s a private institution used principally as an events venue. But there’s also still a strong current of cultural and artistic interchange too.

  • In a City where many things are named for Miguel Hidalgo, it bears pointing out that the suffix –ense, in Hidalguense, refers to people and things originating in the neighboring state of Hidalgo.
  • Parts of Hidalgo are in the Metro Mexico City area. The state was created in 1869. It’s known for the  mountainous terrain, and has a population of some 2.85 million people. It’s an important ecotourism, cultural, and archeological destination.

Opened in 2004 by the Governor of Hidalgo, the project was a collaboration between the State Council for Culture and the Arts of Hidalgo and the State Representative in Mexico City. Operations are divided into two main areas: The Jardín Hidalgo and the Casa Hidalgo. The center offers frequent workshops in arts and crafts and provides an area viewing gallery. That’s not just for artists from Hidalgo but for informational events, lectures, and similar presentations.

The Centro Cultural y Social Hidalguense is central. Just between the Historic Center of Tlalpan and the densely populated Copilco region to the east, it’s a popular location. It’s almost the southernmost point on the Calzada de Tlalpan.
