Auditorium 1

Ground floor



With 2,027 seats, the main auditorium at the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya is one of the most popular spaces for the MICE segment, as it is able to host large-scale cultural events. It is divided into two levels—the stalls (with 1,325 seats) and the boxes and amphitheatre, which offer the same facilities—and it provides exclusively designed seats with desks, computer connections, lighting and power outlets.

It also has a stage, which can be accessed from the front and the sides, and the latest technology for putting on shows. It is the perfect space for congresses, meetings, large conferences, shows, film projections, theatre performances, music concerts and festivals.

This space for congresses and cultural events in Barcelona also offers three dressing rooms on the 2nd floor, all containing a dressing table, a bathroom with shower and a lounge.

The Hall and the Foyers on the ground, 1st and 2nd floors provide easy access and enable attendees to circulate easily. The areas are all connected by stairs and lifts, making the auditorium fully accessible for people with reduced mobility in Barcelona.


The amphitheatre offers 2,027 seats and is accessed via the ground or 2nd floor.

The space has been carefully designed to ensure accessibility for people with reduced mobility.

The auditorium Hall can be accessed from the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya car park, located on Floor -3.
