Parc del Fòrum

The Parc del Fòrum is located on the waterfront at the northernmost end of the city. The park was built for the 2004 Universal Forum of Cultures. It isn't a park or green space in the strictest sense of the word, but a large area which brings together a series of spaces and amenities which host a wide range of events.

In 2004 Barcelona hosted the Universal Forum of Cultures, an unprecedented event which contributed to a dialogue about cultural diversity, sustainable development and the conditions for peace. The epicentre of this major gathering is now a reclaimed area of land by the sea where you'll find: the Plaza and Esplanade which host trade fairs, music festivals and large-scale events; the triangular Forum Building, which has become the undisputed icon of Barcelona's new architecture; the CCIB-Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona, one of the most modern conference facilities in Europe which can host up to 15,000 people; the Parc dels Auditoris, a large open-air space by the sea; and the spectacular Photovoltaic Cell, whose sloping structure is underpinned by a forest of columns and is a symbol of Barcelona's commitment to sustainability and preserving the environment; the Forum Marina and bathing area, where we can soak up the most genuinely Mediterranean character of the city.
