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.

  • The general aspect of the whole, on the outside, it is interesting. With waves that resemble the landscape relief. It is difficult to understand the order in constructions have been undertaken since by the time across the middle part is a big hole in works. Inside, the library does not give sensation of amplitude or brightness... Despite the size of the building! In summary, in my opinion, the overall effect is not achieved. Pity!

  • As building architecture is impressive. I miss more information about the building and how it was built since it has lots of history. We need to give more content to it, is worth entering the library, Museum and take a stroll in javna.
