Ourense International Music Festival Portico do Paraíso was born in February 2008 in an attempt to fill a void in the musical life of the city. It was intended to offer the audience the opportunity to listen to top level worlwide renowned soloists and ensembles in the best buildings of Ourense architectural heritage.
The Cathedral, whose porch names the Festival, has a special role. There are also exhibitions, lectures and meetings with the musicians that create a lively musical atmosphere all over the city as long as the festival lasts.
Since 2020 Asociación Pórtico Musical organizes the festival together with private and public institutions.
