Discover the Ágora

This building has been conceived as a very versatile multifunctional space for holding different types of events.

The new icon of the City of Arts and Sciences is a versatile space that will allow the holding of varied events. A multi-functional setting has been planned for the staging of congresses, conventions, concerts, and performances; it can also be converted into an exhibition area. The Àgora is a metallic structure with a ground plan similar to a pointed ellipse, about 88 metres long by 66 metres wide. Its covered area is approximately 4,811 m2. This large indoor space is conceived as a covered, open plan public plaza at the level of the ponds and adjacent walkways.  The building is surrounded by two lakes that complement the space indoors.

Currently, it is prepared to house the ninth CAIXAFORUM in Spain, a place devoted to the exhibition of very prestigious works of art, which will have several exhibition rooms, an auditorium for lectures, a bookshop, a restaurant and different spaces for family leisure.
