Hospital de Sant Pau
Wednesday 17 June, 7:30pm to 11pm
Supported by Generalitat de Catalunya
The architectural complex of Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is an unmistakable landmark in the culture and heritage of Barcelona. Dating back to 1902, its architectural and patrimonial value extends beyond its urban location and the site has won European and international acclaim. In 1997, together with the Palau de la Música Catalana (one of the world's leading concert halls), the Hospital was declared World Heritage by UNESCO for its singular architectural and artistic beauty. A visit to this magnificent complex allows you to delve into history, art and the present day. The pavilions, set among gardens and connected by underground passages, are breathtakingly beautiful and a showcase for the applied arts, featuring sculptures, stained glass and mosaics.
Thursday 18 June, 7:30pm to 11pm
Supported by CaixaBank
The Data Journalism Ceremony will take place at Cosmocaixa on Thursday night. The venue features a stunning "Flooded Forest (Bosc inundat)", which recreates 1,000 m2 of an Amazonian rainforest ecosystem and features piranhas, crocodiles and other animal and plant species typical to the zone. The museum building is just as fascinating as its contents. Cosmocaixa is a beautiful example of modernista architecture, designed and built between 1904 and 1909 by Josep Domènech i Estapà. The modern extension carried out in 2004 highlighted the value of the century-old building while placing it in a new context.
Friday 19 June, 7:30pm to 11pm
Supported by Moritz
The Fàbrica Moritz Barcelona is a theme park for adults, even better if they are beer lovers! Here you will find a microbrewery that can be considered the Rolls Royce of the European microbreweries, where they produce the unpasteurized fresh Moritz beer. The new factory, inaugurated in 1864, was one of the first constructions in the new Eixample neighborhood. In fact, some traces still remain from this factory, which was in operation for more than a century, and it has now become a landmark that is still preserved in the collective history of the residents in the area. Important vestiges from the former factory still remain, such as the reinforced concrete tanks manufactured in the 1920s, and are the company’s authentic crown jewels. Moritz wanted to restore this great center for the city. For this final event, we will have music and dancing, an ideal combination to finish off the GEN Summit and start the weekend.
