The City of Culture of Galicia, Santiago de Compostela

(1/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Designed by American architect Peter Eisenman, the buildings of The City of Culture of Galicia look like rolling hills. After the budget ballooned from the original forecast, however, the developer halted construction. There is a museum that hosts temporary exhibits, but check online in advance to see if any interest you.

  • I went one day to the city of culture mainly by the curiosity to see this huge unfinished work that cost so much money. There was an exhibition that we took the opportunity to visit, but nothing very interesting and also had little to much space. We took a walk among the buildings and took a few pictures. If you have time it is a visit more that you can do, but not essential.

Santiago is to be congratulated for this space, you need to stimulate more so everyone has a chance to meet.
