Art & Culture


Tabakalera. San Sebastian International Contemporary Culture Centre

The building, which for nearly a century was a tobacco factory, is today a centre for contemporary culture with an international vocation, whose goal is to be a place that brings creativity and contemporary art to the public while also supporting creative artists, a place where knowledge is generated and shared. 

Opened in September 2015, the building and its surrounding area have been totally refurbished, paying special attention to preserving all the character of the historic factory while at the same time making it a part of the life of the city.
