Fira Montjuïc is considered one of the most emblematic urban exhibition venues in the world.
It was built in 1929 on the occasion of the International Exhibition. Currently, it combines tradition with an infrastructure that adapts to all types of events.
It occupies a central location within the city (Avenida Reina María Cristina and Plaza España de Barcelona), easily accessible from the airport and connected to the public transport network. It is located in a privileged environment, within the Parc de Montjuïc, which includes green areas, Olympic facilities and cultural facilities such as the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (MNAC).
In the lower part of the mountain, six great palaces were built, which, for many years, were the space in which the Trade Fair took place annually, apart from salons and monographic fairs. Next to the staircases are the two palaces designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch: that of Alfonso XIII and that of Queen Victoria Eugenia. Its towers reproduce those of the bridge of the Real de Valencia.
