Terras de Santiago

Highlight... Cidade da Cultura de Galicia

  • Cidade da Cultura de Galicia

  • Cidade da Cultura de Galicia

Located in Santiago de Compostela – emblem of the European cultural tradition, whose historic town was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985 – the Cidade da Cultura de Galicia rises high on the summit of Mount Gaiás as a tremendous architectural milestone of the new century. Designed by American architect Peter Eisenman to house the finest expressions of the cultures of Galicia, Spain, Europe, Latin America and the world, this new 'city – inclusive and pluralistic – will help to meet the challenges of the information and knowledge society.

Its unique buildings – connected by streets and squares and equipped with an advanced level of technology – define a space that is excellent for reflection, discussion and action oriented towards the future of Galicia and its internationalisation. Its spaces will play host to services and activities aimed at the preservation of heritage and memory. Study, research, experimentation, production and the sharing of knowledge in the fields of literature and thought will have their part, too. There will be space for music, theatre, dance, film, the visual arts, audio-visual creation and communication.

As a place of convergence and international projection, in the 21st century the Ciudad de la Cultura de Galicia will revitalise the dual calling of the Galician people: to travel and to provide hospitality, thus enabling culture to contribute to its economic and social development.
