Fira Gran Via
Work of the Japanese architect Toyo Ito and one of the largest and most modern trade fair venues in Europe characterized by its design, built on the border between Barcelona and Hospitalet de Llobregat, a symbol of the future committed to sustainability and functionality. Located in a new area of business development, very close to the airport and connected to the public transport network. It began to be built in 1995, when the need to extend the Montjuïc fairgrounds was patented so that it would meet the demands of new developments. With an area of 240,000 m², it is made up of eight pavilions connected by an impressive footbridge and one of the largest photovoltaic parks that have been built on deck, 45 restaurants, 2 heliports and 4,580 parking spaces.
