Museum of Galician People in Santiago de Compostela
The Museum of Galician People was founded in 1976 and is located in the former convent of Santo Domingo Bonaval, on a hill outside the historical center.
The exhibits help visitors gain an understanding of the various aspects that define the Galician culture. It has different rooms dedicated to the sea, the trades, the countryside, clothing, music, architecture and habitat. It also has two sections designated to archaeology, and painting and sculpture. Temporary exhibitions are held in various subjects.
The Convent of Santo Domingo Bonaval was founded in the thirteenth century by Santo Domingo de Guzman. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, it was renovated and transformed, leaving a lasting baroque imprint. The most notable part of the museum was designed by the architect Domingo de Andrade which highlights the triple helix ladder inside.
