La Térmica Cultural consists of three buildings joined together to form a unit. In addition to the refurbishment of two of the historic facilities of the Compostilla I thermal power plant, the boiler room and the turbine hall, the New Building has been built to serve as a link between the two and as the main entrance hall. The complex is located in an elevated area, near the Sil river and at the foot of the Camino de Santiago, offering privileged views of Ponferrada.

The complex has a surface area of more than 6,500 m2 distributed over 3 floors and a seating capacity of 4,700 people at its maximum capacity. The spaces have different uses, such as hosting temporary and permanent exhibitions, holding artistic performances and informative events, as well as workshops and professional training courses.

The outdoor area has 39,000 square meters of green areas, with pedestrian paths that connect to the Compostilla neighborhood. La Térmica Cultural has surface parking spaces for cars and bicycles.
