Culture

A Coruña's cultural life is not limited to closed spaces like museums, showrooms or galleries. The Sculpture Park at the tower of Hercules is a good example of how you can join art and nature.

Located near the tower of Hercules, the Sculpture Park gathers 15 pieces from Spanish sculptors in some way related to mythology and the history of this tale-rich city. But there are also plenty of spaces where culture and local traditions can be enjoyed. Fundacíon La Caixa, for instance, has its own exihibition space (www.obrasocialcaixagalicia.org ), but there are around 20 art galleries in town where you can regularly visit painting, sculpture and photo exhibitions. Museums such as Belas-Artes (www.museobelasartescoruna.xunta.es) or the Contemporary Art Museum (www.macuf.com) showcase pretty interesting collections. At the Casa Museu de María Pita, you can find information on the most famous woman in A Coruña and at Casa Museu Picasso, you'll several works by the author. The Rosalía de Castro Theatre is one of the most active institutions in town, getting not only plays but also concerts. Teatro Colón, founded in the 1940s, has already been a cinema, but now hosts other types of shows. Forum Metropolitano is dedicated to attracting new publics, receiving cinema festivals and university theatre showcases. The preservation of local culture also has an important weight in the life of A Coruña and is promoted by institutions like Asociación Cultural y Musical Cantábile (www.corocantabile.es) and Federación de grupos de baile tradicional de Galícia.
