  • The Galician Centre of contemporary art is located next to the Museo do Pobo Galego and Santo Domingo de Bonaval Park. As the name suggests in its interior modern artworks are exposed and it is a good counterpoint to the view to the "Museo do Pobo Galego". A set, both museums must-see

  • The building of the Museum of modern art is known for its strict rectangular forms and from afar. We got to the Museum by chance, just passed by and decided to take a peek, even more so, for free. Many paintings by modern artists, products of local craftsmen. But apparently, because we are not particular fans of contemporary art, a special impression is not produced.

  • 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.
