La Casa de la Tía Toña, or the Tía Toña House, is a very intriguing house down here in Mexico City. It’s in the middle of the Chapultepec Forest, and entering there is forbidden. It’s also the focus of at least four contradicting stories, from the age of the Tía Toña (Some say she was elderly, some say that she was in her 40’s), to the nature of what happened there (Some say she killed some kids that were bullying her, some say that she killed the children she had adopted, all say she killed herself afterwards), and what happens if you actually manage to enter her.
That’s why making her design was so fun. Because she’s beautiful, but shrouded in mystery.
