Modern Contemporary Architecture
Avant-garde and innovation come together in Heritage Cities. They look to the future thanks to buildings created by prestigious architects. The National Museum of Roman Art by Rafael Moneo or Calatrava’s Lusitania Bridge, both located in Mérida, are fine examples of this. In Salamanca, the Performing Arts and Music Centre or the Domus Atrium 2002 are well worth a visit. The Cidade da Cultura demonstrates the most modern side to Santiago de Compostela. Tarragona is home to original creations by Antoni Gaudí and Domènech i Montaner whilst Toledo houses spaces such as the Plaza de Alfonso VI and its Chillida sculpture.
