The Kursaal Congress Centre is one of the most representative architectural works by the Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. It is situated on the Zurriola beach, facing the Cantabrian Sea and is the epicenter of the city’s cultural and congress activity, hosting more than 200 events and 500,000 attendants a year and backed by fifteen years of proven experience. Its location makes it easy to walk to emblematic spots in the city, such as the Old Town and La Concha Bay. Moreover, it is next to restaurants and the commercial area of the city.
