Palau Congressos Barcelona
The Palau de Congressos de Barcelona has positioned itself as the favorite venue among international companies and associations that need a central, wide and versatile space to celebrate their meetings in Barcelona. The Auditorium of 1,609 seats, 5,500 m2 of multipurpose space, 10 conference rooms and an impressive terrace with privileged views of the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc are the most outstanding elements of this historic venue. The original building was created for the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1929 and it housed the Projections Palace. In the 1960s, it became the Palace of Nations and in the 1990s it was remodeled, to become the Palau de Congressos de Barcelona.
In 1992 it was the headquarters of the Olympic Press Center and during the reconstruction of the Gran Teatre del Liceu at the end of the 1990s, the Palau de Congressos was the site of great operas. One of its most precious characteristics is the location, since apart from being in the center, it is located in one of the most emblematic areas of the city, surrounded by the National Palace, the Alfonso XIII and Victoria Eugenia Palaces, the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion and the Arenas shopping center.
