By being one of the International Congress & Convention Association’s top 5 most popular congress cities, Barcelona hosts hundreds of meetings annually. Though Spain’s 2nd largest city is surrounded by mountains and the sea, Barcelona is far from unreachable. El Prat, the 2nd largest airport in Spain, welcomes over 30 million passengers to Barcelona each year, while Renfe’s high-speed passenger trains link the city to major metropolitans across the country.
Barcelona has an array of venues that you can choose from but Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site is unique.
Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1997, is a unique space designed by Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. After housing for more than 80 years the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, in the autumn of 2009 a significant restoration process has recovered the artistic value of this jewel, considered world’s largest Art Nouveau ensemble.
Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site serves as a fashionable venue for corporate and private meetings. With a capacity for over 600 people, its splendid interiors are an ideal setting for corporate meetings, courses, conferences, presentations and evening musical concerts, ranging from classical to jazz to African and Latin-American music.
The Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site is an excellent location for film and photo shoots, with its indoor and outdoor spaces giving it tremendous potential as a set.
The Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site offers a program of cultural activities that allows visitors to discover Sant Pau in a different way. Concerts and conferences are the main activities in which art and knowledge are displayed side by side in the wonderful gardens.
