The Canary Islands Congress Centre / The Alfredo Kraus Auditorium is located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the capital of the island of Gran Canaria.
Located in an exceptional place, at one end of Las Canteras beach, the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium and Congress Centre of the Canary Islands is an icon of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
In this building, beauty and functionality come together to offer, on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, a space of 16,750 square metres, with 25 rooms that can accommodate up to 4,600 people.
Next to the halls, the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium has large interior spaces for rest and leisure, extended outwards through a privileged area of the city where one can contemplate the promenade that borders the five kilometres of Las Canteras beach.
The building, designed as a "fortress that protects and a lighthouse that guides", is the work of the Catalan architect Óscar Tusquets, who was assisted by Carlos Díaz and the project management of Agustín Juárez and Marcos Roger.
The Gran Canarian artist and architect Juan Bordes is the author of the sculptural intervention, a recreation of the marine fauna of Las Canteras beach present both inside and on each of its façades, which delves into the integration of the building with the landscape.
