Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is a Mediterranean and cosmopolitan city with Roman remains, medieval quarters and the most beautiful examples of 20th century Modernism and avant-garde.

Constructions by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. The city's origins are Roman, and its long history and economic dynamism have made Barcelona a city of culture. Visitors to Barcelona can enjoy museums, exhibitions, open-air sculptures ... and many concerts, plays and dances.

Hesperia Tower - Barcelona

Hesperia Tower Hotel & Convention Centre

The hotel features an extraordinary design by British architect Richard Rogers, renowned for his Centre Pompidou in Paris.

The hotel has 280 guestrooms distributed over 29 floors. Organizing events is one of their specialities, as evidenced by the fact that of all hotels in Barcelona, they boast the most extensive meeting facilities.

The Hesperia Barcelona Tower Hotel, formerly known as Hesperia Tower, can be found in Barcelona’s new business and financial district between the airport and the city centre. One of Barcelona’s skyline landmarks, the 108m high tower is topped by a stunning glass dome that offers breath-taking 360 views of the city.
