The 39 colors present in the facade of The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (MUSAC) pay homage to the jewel of the city, the Cathedral of León. Its colors are also a wink and an invitation to the citizen, wanting to show the building as a space open to all people, a living space.
Once inside, its large halls and more than 500 concrete beams are impressive. Generating an achievement of broken but continuous rooms that allow to lodge exhibitions of all classes and sizes.
