Between the sea and the mountains, Girona is a city full of charm and well communicated, just 37 minutes from Barcelona by high-speed train and 60 km from the French border.

It has two large infrastructures, the Fira de Girona and the Girona Conference Centre, that complement each other to host large-scale congresses and events.

This great congress complex of 30,000 m2 is located in the Devesa Park, a protected green zone perfectly connected with the city, 10 minutes from its historic centre or the high-speed train station.

Girona’s rich heritage includes unique places linked to its history and fully equipped to hold gala dinners, cocktail receptions and events that can count on specialised professional services and a diversity of accommodation options to offer an unforgettable experience for congress organisers and participants.

Figueres, the capital of the Empordà region, is a perfect spot for holding congresses and meetings. It is less than an hour from Barcelona and twenty minutes from both France and the Cap de Creus Natural Park, where the Pyrenees descend into the sea.

Among the city’s many attractions, pride of place goes to the Salvador Dalí Theatre-Museum, the world’s largest Surrealist work. The local gastronomy and landscapes complete a genuine offer of ideal spaces for holding congresses and meetings.

The Catalan Art Nouveau-style El Jardí Theatre is the city’s principal stage venue, with a capacity for around a thousand spectators. The Castle of Sant Ferran, Europe’s largest 17th-century fortress, has interior rooms and spaces fully equipped for events and meetings, and it also offers spectacular locations for large open-air events.

For small and medium-format meetings, the city has captivating places like the historic Capuchin Auditory, now completely renovated with the latest technical installations for hosting a variety of events and activities. La Cate, considered a cultural asset of national interest, has also been restored to host events for up to 300 participants.

Inside one of the town’s extinct volcanoes is the recently-built Espai Crater, a centre of reference for studies and divulgation on vulcanology that has spaces for corporate events of small and medium format.
