  • Visit the Center Galician of art contemporary bass a copious rain morning, as is usual in the area. The Museum is next to the Museum do Pobo Galego (which then visited) and Santo Domingo de Bonaval Park. The building is impressive, work of the Portuguese and Pritzker Prize, Alvaro Siza Vieira, is a quite contemporary building, embedded in the historical centre of the city. Account with huge and untapped bright spaces that you can walk well if you don't have any disabilities, (should look at the issue of adapting the spaces to persons with reduced mobility). Surprised that being free just we were visiting it half a dozen people. Can visit, besides them spaces exhibition, its library and huge cafeteria, where we attended very well. Do not let go!

  • If you are interested in art, certainly not miss a visit to the CGAC, in addition it is free. They usually have two temporary exhibitions, an international artist and one more local. You can take advantage of to take a stroll along the Bonaval Park, which is on the side

  • The building of the CGAC is a masterpiece located in beautiful surroundings of Santiago de Compostela. Building dialogues with the environment that surrounds you with the light that let both the stone. Worth a stroll through the surrounding area when. On the inside it has large spaces not always fully exploited. The Centre publishes a few good catalogues of the exhibitions that are worth reading, since then in rooms much exposure nor is. Plus: is free

  • I had one of the best meals of my life in the restaurant round the back of this museum. It was in a peaceful and beautiful garden round the back, we had met the chef earlier on the camino, he was so friendly, and in the restaurant came out to check we were enjoying our food and chat. As I said amazing food, we had a butter bean and lettuce salad and chargrilled octopus...simple food, but so delicious and perfect for the environment, traditional Galician and modern. I could never recreate such delicious food at home.
  • Not the best Alvaro Siza building but sometimes they have nice expositions (I saw three and was never disappointed)
  • Free creepy basement conceptual art.
  • Creado en 1993 e con programación estable desde 1995, o Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea está situado no límite da cidade monumental, nun espazo máxico para os galegos, compartindo veciñanza co convento de San Domingos de Bonaval, onde se atopa o Panteón de Galegos Ilustres; co Museo do Pobo Galego, recordo etnográfico da nosa historia, ademais de constante ponte e metáfora entre as nosas orixes e a actualidade; e cun antigo cemiterio, recuperado por Álvaro Siza (coa colaboración de Isabel Aguirre) e convertido en sorprendente xardín de aires metafísicos, unha presenza moi galaica da auga e unha solución en explanadas e volumes que dá suxerente réplica aos do centro.
  • Interesting Museum but with little content, it is not to visit as a tourist must-see, but if there is a temporary exhibition or some specific act is a good place to go. As a museum if you live in the area always is interesting to go.
