Victims of Terrorism Memorial Centre - Tourism in Vitoria-Gasteiz
One century after the first inauguration, the old Bank of Spain in Vitoria-Gasteiz reopened its doors as the Victims of Terrorism Memorial Centre. Designed by the Navarre architect José Yarnoz Larrosa (1884-1966), it was built in 1920 in the neo-Renaissance style and has a rectangular floor plan measuring 33 x 20 metres.
The Museum disseminates democratic and ethical values, constructing a collective memory of the victims and raising public awareness against terrorism, and about the defence of freedom and human rights.
There are 6 rooms to be visited in the museum’s itinerary:
- "Here, yesterday": the presentation/introduction area.
- "Memorial Space": the central area of the building.
- "The history of terrorism".
- "Hate speech and practices": the space about the attacks and about the actions and discourses that legitimise terrorism.
- "Response to terror": police, social, international, political and legal response.
- "The voice of the victims".
The Memorial Centre provides visitors with a documentation centre, assembly rooms, an educational area and a museum with permanent and temporary exhibitions.
