Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa

Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa

The Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa in the fishing village of Getaria, is housed in an annex to the Palacio Aldamar, former residence of the Marquises of Casa Torre, grandparents to Queen Fabiola of Belgium and mentors to Balenciaga in the early years of his career.

The building is new, avant-garde and very large in volume, where the interior is designed to define bright, warm spaces offering the possibility of holding special events, business meetings, sales presentations and receptions.  The ground floor occupies almost 2,000 m² of useful surface organised into different spaces. Added to this main space, the Museum has an auditorium, classrooms and a sprawling open attic.
