Sant Pau Cultural Center

The project focuses on the conversion of the Seminary of Tarragona into a cultural space and a landmark for the city. A prestigious research centre where science, art, religion and history are part of the essence of the project. A clear intention to open the building to the public, to discover all its rooms and show the world a unique cultural heritage that is now hidden. To provide the building with the most modern technologies to host all sorts of cultural events but with great respect of the historical environment, preserving it and emphasizing it. Outstanding places as the chapel of Sant Pau, the Roman wall, the Paraninfo or the Historical Library are now displayed in all their glory in this contemporary proposal which is at the same time respectful and resolute.
