Casa das Artes Cultural Centre
Visit the home of the arts in the Ensanche
The Casa das Artes is in the Ensanche, in the heart of the city, and two minutes from the port. It holds several permanent municipal collections: it’s the headquarters for the Laxeiro Foundation and the Pacheco Photographic Archive. The Torras Collection, created in 1998 as a result of the donations made by local artist Luis Torras, is the selection of the best work developed throughout his career.
Due to its content and location, this is the best cultural centre in Vigo; a mandatory stop for a quick look at the city’s historic photography and art.
Romualdo de Madariaga designed this beautiful rationalist building in 1939 to house the Banco de España, until it closed in the 80s. Ten years later it became the Casa das Artes, Vigo’s most important centre for temporary exhibitions.
