About the Museum

Centro Botín is a major new visual art centre in Santander, Spain, developed by Fundación Botín. Designed by the architect Renzo Piano, the museum is located in a privileged part of Santander and uses a broader urban intervention to integrate the city centre and the historic Pereda Gardens with the Bay. The building is made up of two blocks, connected by a structure of squares and the walkways known as "the pachinko." The west block is dedicated to art, with two exhibition rooms. The east block is for cultural and educational activities, boasting an auditorium for 300 people, classrooms, work spaces and a rooftop terrace to enjoy the breathtaking views of Santander and its bay. The center opens a door to art for the people of Santander city and the Cantabria region, while aiming to strengthen the city’s social and cultural fabric by creating a new attraction, for all who visit from around the world.
