Galicia and Asturias Sights



Cidade da Cultura Review

More than 10 years in the making, Santiago's vast new City of Culture, a striated-stone-and-glass edifice on Mt. Gaiás, has whisked Galician culture into the future. At the time of writing the archive, library, and Museo de Galicia is open. The complex will also include a performing arts theater and an international arts center. The design, by American architect Peter Eisenman, is based on the shape of a scallop shell, the emblem of St. James.
