CAAM - Centro Atlantico de Arte

The CAAM (Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno) is a modern art museum which displays temporary art exhibitions.

Its located is right behind Santa Ana Catherdal and Casa de Colon in Vegueta. It's down Los Balcones Street which goes towards the sea and it's on your right.

The museum opened in 1989 and its main aim is to bring together art and cultures from the three continents surrounding the Atlantic Ocean; Europe, Africa and America.

The museum is a large modern building (3,682 square metres) which preserves its 18th century facade.

And right as you walk in you will find yourself surrounded by white marble. There are two floors, a basement and an attic. The Centro Atlantico de Arte Moderno also has a great library which you can't miss!

It used to be free to go in but their usual entrance fee is now of 5 euros. However it still is free on Tuesday evenings!

Free Guided Visits!

To get the most out of your visit we would recommend you give the museum a call during working days in the mornings (09:00 - 11:00) to arrange a guided visit. You can do this on (+34) 928 31 18 00 or by emailing them to

While in this area of Vegueta we heavily recommend you also visit Casa de Colon, which is literally just arond the corner and to go into the Cathedral of Santa Ana.
