A cultural space dedicated to contemporary art, music, film, theatre, and literature. The building, designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano, is set in the Pereda Gardens in an exceptional location on the Santander Bay.

Opened in 2017, this work by Piano, in partnership with Spanish architect Luis Vidal, is expected to become an architectural and cultural symbol of the city. The construction recalls a stone breakwater, in two volumes over slender columns, as tall as the trees surrounding them, and partly suspended over the sea, designed to harmonise with the setting.

Two galleries, lecture rooms, work spaces, a roof terrace where the public can enjoy a unique view of Santander and its bay, and a 300-seater auditorium which also offers an impressive view, with the sea and the mountains forming the backdrop. Location: in central Santander, next to the seafront promenade.
