The Auditorium of Galicia, designed by the architect Julio Cano Lasso, was opened in 1988. It was built using traditional Galician architectural solutions, such as granite masonry and galleries, thereby combining traditional elements with today´s construction forms and needs. Its construction involved the creation of a mirror-pond, which reflects the Auditorium´s architecture and the landscaped surroundings, which have become one of the city´s most popular green spaces: the Music in Compostela Park.
The park is a tapestry-like meadow, with a lot of shade, that is located at the foot of the small Corgo stream, which is its main element. Here the park reveals unexpected views of the old town: the backs of the convents of San Fransisco and San Martín Pinario, the Cathedral towers… It also features a surrealist sculpture by the Galician artist Eugenio Granell, which stands out due to its height and bright colours. The Auditorium´s classical music programme and plastic arts exhibitions, as well as its cafeteria overlooking the lake, are additional attractions offered by this park.
