MARCO (Museum of Contemporary Art)

Located in the heart of the city’s commercial quarter, that is, in the pedestrian and centrally situated Principe street, MARCO (Museo de Arte Contemporánea) occupies what was formerly Vigo’s prison and court (1880), a place closely related to the collective memory which constitutes one of the centre’s main attractions. Special attention has been paid to the integration of the building into its urban context by surrounding it with a pedestrian area and building a staircase linking it to the streets on the back facade and to its environment.
