Casa galega da cultura (Galician House of Culture)

Visit Vigo’s old Town Hall

The Casa Galega da Cultura (Galician House of Culture) is a multidisciplinary centre that combines artistic and literary activities in Vigo with a bibliographic and museum collection based on the study of Galicia’s current and historical reality.

Besides the main building, it includes the Penzol Library, houses the Francisco Fernández del Riego Museum and holds a collection by this key figure in the history of Vigo: a writer, intellectual and politician who worked all his life to support and promote Galician culture.

The eclectic style headquarters is one of the oldest buildings in the centre of Vigo, and until the 70s it housed the Town Hall.

Tips and recommendations: 

If you’re right in Vigo’s Old Town, why not take the opportunity to spend the day exploring it? You’ll find emblematic buildings, gastronomy... and if it gets late, remember this is also one of the best areas to start the night in Vigo
