Dinner Venue – Estació de França (Barcelona)
The Social Dinner will take place at l’Estació de França, in Barcelona.
The Estació de Fança, Barcelona's grand station, is a showcase of good taste and monumental architecture.
It stands on the site of the old Granollers station from where the first train from Barcelona to Mataró departed in 1848. It was the only station located inside the city walls and this made it necessary to make a hole in the sea wall and build a bridge over the pit that had been excavated. The distinctive curved layout of the tracks is the result of having to bypass the military fortress.
In 1926, Barcelona was undergoing sweeping transformations and preparing itself for the 1929 International Exhibition. One of the projects was the Estació de França, designed by the engineer Andreu Muntaner and the architect Pedro Muguruza. They both joined forces to provide all the elements necessary to create a modern and elegant station worthy of the first line connecting Barcelona and France.
In the Estació, the same is true of the noucentista-style lobby, designed by Duran Reynals, creating a spacious area ideal for all kinds of activities. An elegant clock keeps accurate time and there is also a model of the station. The lobby and buildings around the tracks were constructed from luxury materials, including marble and bronze, which give the station its characteristic ornate appearance.
