....over the river to explore the buildings of this famous architect. I loved the sub surface barrier on the river . Must be great to watch a concert in the main building. If you are in aviles this has to be a must see.

Interesting facilities by this iconic architect. We saw 2 exhibitions - one on photographs by a Finnish/ American photographer which we all enjoyed and and one on the relationship between art, artist and sculpture. Well presented.

I was there for the EM Duathlon, it was very special to feel the atmosphere during the competition. It is a great venue for big events.

Wonderful place. Architecture curtesy of Oscar Nemeiyer, probably one of his last creations. Brad Pitt was so enamoured he came to see it for himself! Well worth a visit.

Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer designed this arts complex a few years before he died at age 104. It is quite some swan song, all impressive buildings, the main dome gallery is a wonderful space and every exhibition in there since opening has been impressive. A...More
