Granada: hosting city.
Being a highly experienced city in hosting large conferences and events, we are aware of the needs that congressmen have when attending congresses.
The Alhambra, UNESCO World Heritage, one of the most visited monuments in the world, and Sierra Nevada, make the city an expert host in the reception of international tourism. With a wide cultural offer for moments of rest after the scientific day.
Congress & Convention Centre
The Congress & Convention Centre and Granada are the perfect pair for the celebration of the XXIX National Congress SEAP, the XXIV National Congress SEC and the V National Congress SEPAF.
The building was inaugurated by the King and Queen of Spain on April 19, 1992, the year of the Barcelona Olympic Games and the Universal Exposition of Seville. From the first day it became one of the reference buildings of the city of Granada.
The main hall, which can accommodate 2,000 people, was located in the
centre of the building with a semi-circular layout to adapt to the geometry of the building.
The interior lining obeys the idea of treating the rooms as "wooden boxes" inside the large "stone box". Therefore, the interior and exterior of the rooms were made with maple wood, which seemed the most suitable from the acoustic point of view and was also warm.
The offer in spaces is polyvalent and is adapted to offer the best solution: 45,000 m2 in the center of Granada, 2 Auditoriums (2,000 / 550 people), 24 parallel rooms, 4,000 meters of exhibition, 3,000 m2 of terrace and outdoor amphitheatre with capacity for 650 people.
The city was the capital of the Zirí Kingdom of Granada during the 11th
century, and of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada between the 13th and 15th
centuries. After the capture of the city by the Catholic Monarchs, it remained
the capital of the Castilian Kingdom of Granada, which was already a territorial
jurisdiction, and which remained so until 1833, at which point there was a new
provincial division in Spain, still prevalent nowadays. Its municipal coat of arms
holds the titles of "Very noble, very loyal, named, great, celebrated and heroic
city of Granada."
Granada is a tourist destination, due to its monuments and the proximity of its professional ski resort, as well as the historic area known as La Alpujarra and also due the nearby coast, known as Costa Tropical. Amongst its historical buildings, the Alhambra is one of the most important monuments in the country, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984, next to the Generalife garden and the Albaicín. Its cathedral is considered the first Renaissance church in Spain.
The cultural offer of Granada includes a score of museums, among which is the
Science Park of Granada (the second most visited scientific museum in Spain,
after the City of Arts and Sciences of Valencia) or the Museum of Fine Arts of
Granada, considered the oldest provincial pinacoteca of the country. In
addition, the city hosts the headquarters of the Manuel de Falla Archive and
the Federico García Lorca Center.
The University of Granada, according to the student data of 2007-2008, is the fourth biggest nationally by number of students and is one of the most popular destinations for European university students of the Erasmus program.
The Alhambra was a palatial city, the Christian Royal House, the General
Captaincy of the Kingdom of Granada, a military fortress until it was declared a
Monument in 1870.
The Alhambra is a must for all those who want to live a complete experience of the city. From the organization we want to facilitate your visit.
