Local painting, photography and architecture all under one roof.
The nerve centre of regional art.
Known as the best place in Vigo for municipal temporary exhibitions of photography, architecture and visual art, the Casa de las Artes is a real symbol of the city, hosting works by some of its most famous artists. The bottom floor of the Casa de las Artes is home to the Pacheco Photography Archive, with over 140,000 historical photographs from 1879 to 1970 that show how Vigo has changed over time; the second floor is home to the Torras collection, established in 1998 after the donation made by this great artist from Vigo, with nearly seventy paintings; the third floor is the headquarters of the Laxeiro Foundation and Collection, a key figure in the history of Galician painting. Although the building was built in 1939, it only became a cultural centre in 1990. It is located in the historical quarter.
