The Compostela of the New Millennium

Santiago de Compostela’s dimension as a cultural and university city, and as a meeting place for people from all over the world, has resulted in different urban interventions. Due to their quality and singularity, such projects play an active role in the global dialogue of this new century’s architectural and urbanistic avant-garde. This is the case of the Auditorium of Galicia, the Galician Contemporary Art Centre (CGAC), the Journalism Faculty, the remodelling of Avenida Xoán XXIII –with a large, inclining shelter and a coach terminus as the main features, and the Public Library under construction- the Congress and Exhibition Hall, San Domingos de Bonaval Park, the City of Culture… These, along with numerous, elegant green spaces, the opening of new public spaces, the sculptures scattered throughout the cityscape, etc, make Compostela a city in which past and future –tradition and modernity- coexist in a unique way.
