A series of halls play host to important art, music and theatre events
The cultural epicentre of Vigo.
Vigo's vibrant cultural scene ebbs and flows around the Novacaixagalicia cultural centre which, in addition to a theatre, has several concert halls, an exhibition space, an auditorium, a conference room and a library with 200,000 books. Opening in 1984, after an intense renovation project, it is located in the former García Barbón theatre, created by the Galician architect Antonio Palacios. The façade is designed in the Neo-baroque style. Its programme of events includes classical music concerts, plays, ballets and exhibitions by local, national and international artists. The centre receives an estimated 300,000 visitors each year.
