Casa del Lector

The cultural space where readers and reading take centre stage
logo casa del lector

Casa del Lector is a place dedicated to the experience of reading, reading’s new face, reading awareness and education for those who encourage reading to others. It is a space where the general public and the professional world mix: adults, young people and children; but also the written word, an image, art. Any cultural work requires good reading skills in order to be understood and apreciated.

Casa del Lector holds many events, such as exhibitions, conferences, educational courses, workshops, music, and stage arts series, as well as applied research. These events contribute to the creation of readers who understand, process, share and interpret the world, society and their time.
