Lonely Planet review

Much reviled by Galicians as a gigantic waste of public money, work on this vast prestige project on Monte Gaiás, 1.5km southeast of the Old Town, was stopped in 2013 after a decade of delays, rethinks and budget blowouts. Four of the six main buildings are open, but there's little inside them to see or do unless your visit happens to coincide with a worthwhile event. If you're curious, the City of Culture merits a visit for its dramatic 21st-century architecture and as a monument to Spain's boom-gone-bust.

Get there on bus 9 (hourly Monday to Friday until 10.35pm and Saturday until 1.35pm), northbound on Rúa da Virxe da Cerca.
