Main stage for Escenas do cambio since its first edition. Its beauty and flexibility make this building within the City of Culture of Galicia complex the perfect space to host large-scale exhibitions, cultural events and performing arts shows.
Floor -1: Room 1 and Room 2.
Headquarters of the City of Culture Foundation and the Agency for Technological Modernisation of Galicia, which combines the Galician Government’s technological services. It has several auditoriums for holding events or shows, including the Conference Hall.
A gallery of tunnels that runs through the basement of the complex and connects the different buildings making up the City of Culture complex. They are mainly used to facilitate bringing materials to each space and as a setting for stage and musical performances.
Multifunctional space located next to the parking area and the Gaiás access door, both from the motorway and from the centre of Santiago de Compostela. It includes a stage-space within a depression in the ground complete with terraced seating that forms a natural auditorium.
Located in Santiago de Compostela’s old town, the Theatre Hall was reopened in 1999 following architectural work that allowed this 1920's space to be renovated for stage performances after two decades without any. Currently managed by the Department of Culture, Education and Universities, through the Galician Agency for Cultural Industries, the theatre hosts the Compostela exhibition of all the productions by the Centro Dramático Gallego — which has its headquarters here — as well as a programme open to different areas of the performing arts, music and cinema. It has a capacity of 272 seats.
Built by the Jesuits in the 17th century, it belonged to the college of the Society of Jesus until it became the chapel of the University of Santiago de Compostela during the 18th century. It has precious Baroque altarpieces inside, including the main altarpiece by Simón Rodríguez. It is now actively used as an exhibition hall and stage for various shows organised by the USC.
The history of the Follas Novas Bookshop began in December 1971, founded by three priests in a small space of 95 m2. Initially focused on university books, shortly after, one of its founders, Rafael Silva Costoyas, left his ecclesiastical career to take charge of the bookshop and its publishing house. His brother, Amador, later took over the management and dedicated his life to expanding the store to its 750 m2. The history of Follas Novas is also the history of the people who have passed through the bookshop over the years: collaborators, authors, customers and families who still remember the smell of the storybooks of their childhood.
End of the known world for the ancient Celtic and Roman civilisations, Fisterra is also the final point on the last Jacobean route that many pilgrims follow after reaching Santiago de Compostela to fulfil rituals at the end of the Way, such as bathing in the waters of the Atlantic or watching the sun disappear into the sea’s horizon. The city, the municipal cemetery designed by the architect César Portela and Langosteira beach in this municipality on the Costa da Morte are also transformed into a stage for the travelling piece that Marc Caellas and Esteban Feune de Colombi bring to Escenas do cambio 2022.
