Tour description

I propose a new tour focused on the most modern buildings in Santiago.
Does Álvaro Siza ring a bell? César Portela? Anton Garcia April? and... Peter Eisenman? On this tour you will be able to learn about his influence and his buildings along with those of other architects of the 20th century.

Our meeting point is the Plaza del Obradoiro . There, with an introduction to contemporary architecture and what it meant for the improvement of the city of Santiago, we will go to see the most beautiful buildings visited by students and the most curious.

Although it may not seem like it , our tour is long... so be prepared for these 2 hours!

  • Finca Simeon... yes, yes! those of the bank!
  • Galician Auditorium
  • John XXIII Avenue
  • San Roque Square
  • Santo Domingo de Bonabal Park
  • View of the City of Culture... one of the most impressive buildings of our era!!

Without a doubt , we will go through new streets and we will get to know the city beyond its old medieval walls , since the historic center is not the only thing you should visit in Santiago.
We will end the visit with a beautiful panoramic view of the city of Santiago.
Book now and come to see the most modern buildings in the city!

Do not miss!! We meet in the Plaza del Obradoiro under the VIOLET UMBRELLA
