The Historic Café Casino of Santiago de Compostela is one of the places that are characterized as part of the patrimonial heritage of Spain.
Cafe Casino was inaugurated in June 1873 at No. 35 of the street Rua do Vilar and was immediately the meeting point of bourgeois and aristocrats. Until today, this magnificent Cafe held various cultural events. Indeed, at the Café Casino were organized events with Galician dances.
The Historic Café Casino has an amazing wooden decoration that has been preserved to this day, while the magnificent wood carvings inside of the Cafe are made by Maximino Magariños, who was also one of the carpenters who decorated the famous Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. The Café Casino is thoroughly linked to Art, Letters, and Culture. Exhibitions, book presentations, musical performances, etc. are hosted on the Cafe!
