Plenary of the 25th EGOS Colloquium at the Palau de la Música Catalana
On the evening of July 2, 2009 at 18:30 there will be a Plenary Event at the Palau de la Música Catalana. With over 100 years of history, the Palau de la Música Catalana is one of the main local points of Catalan musical life. It was built between 1905 and 1908 and is considered to be one of Modernism’s chief exponents. The building, an original design by the Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. From 1982 until 1999, the Tusquets-Díaz Architects Studio carried out works to redesign and extend the building, a project which has endowed it with all the features demanded of a modern concert hall.
The Palau de la Música Catalana is located in the old city centre.
Address: Sant Francesc de Paula 2, Barcelona.
Subway: The nearest underground station is Urquinaona (Line L4).
