Parc
“The Alameda park is the most important reference point as regards Santiago residents´ walks and leisure; it is a very pleasant area, a kind of natural lounge. Its privileged location, bordering part of the old town, with a magnificent perspective of its west façade (the most monumental one), makes it the city´s main garden. It also stands out because of the variety and size of its trees and ornamental species, such as its oak grove (`carballeira´ in Galician), magnificent eucalyptus trees or the pergola with views formed by the horse chestnuts in Paseo da Ferradura. ”

Hotel
“Tiene un precioso jardín para tomar un café o lo que apetezca, pero es muy popular y puede resultar complicado encontrar una mesa. Pero merece la pena acercarse tan sólo a ver el jardín. It has a lovely garden, ideal for having a coffee. But it is so popular that it can be difficult to get a table. Worth visiting just to have a look.”

With its activities CGAC aims to point out at the artistic guidelines of the last few decades. The Center has held retrospective shows of internationally acclaimed artists. The Centre aims at becoming, first and foremost, an active space. Therefore, lecture series, artist workshops, open discussion between artists and critics, a video platform programme, are part of its daily practice, and so does the information about our activities available on the Internet (www.cgac.org).”
