Cultural Center

On May 26th, 2010, the Julio Mario Santo Domingo Cultural Center and Public Library opened its doors with the promise of becoming the long-awaited and needed cultural space in northern Bogotá. Located in the San José de Bavaria neighborhood (Suba area). 

This is a 23,000 squared meter complex, that holds a mega biblioteca –great library– with a capacity of 150,000 books; Teatro Mayor, a space designed especially for large-scale concerts, operas, shows and theatrical perfomances; and Teatro Estudio, where chamber music concerts, contemporary dance and more experimental performances take place. The construction of the building and the management of both theaters was conceived under an innovative public-private management scheme in which the private sector and the Mayor of Bogotá joined forces to make the dream of having a program of excellence that benefit everyone, come true.
