The Foundation

The Foundation for the City of Culture of Galicia was established in 1999 through an initiative of the Xunta de Galicia and under the law of Foundations of Interest for Galicia, with the aim to focus on creating and managing a "multifunctional, multidisciplinary and all-encompassing space, contributing towards cultural interaction".

Situated in Santiago de Compostela and conceived as a large-scale cultural hub, devoted to the knowledge and creativity of today, the City of Culture of Galicia has been designed ever since its inception as an instrument to combine past and present, enabling an integrated approach to a strategic element for the development of Galicia: that of culture.

After ten years of intensive, rich discussions and a careful building process, the City of Culture of Galicia has been on the go since  2011 as a project that makes architecture be at the service of  culture and art.
