L´Edifici Històric of the Universitat de Barcelona

The conference venue at Plaça d´Universitat,  the old historical building of the University of Barcelona, is a design with strong mediaeval influence made by the Catalan architect Elies Rogent i Amat. Although officially opened to the public in 1873, its construction was only completed in 1882, two decades after its start. The slideshow shows images of the façade and the clock tower, the central entrance hall (marked with a blue dot in the map in Gran Via Street),  the Letters Court Yard, the Noble Hall (Paranimf) and the Noble Passage (Passadís Noble), the last of which leads to the Aula Magna (our main conference room). At the back of the university building there is a quiet and peaceful botanic garden. A series of attractive and affordable bars and restaurants are directly adjacent to the university building; in Aribau Street: Canela, La Valenciana, La Flauta; and in Enrique Granados Street: La Cordial, Cosmo, Fondue, DelaCrem, Flamant and many more.
