Once again, Barcelona will become the European capital of cardiology. On 26-30 August 2017, the Gran Vía site of Fira de Barcelona will host the European Society of Cardiology Congress. This congress is held in a different European country every year, although this is not the first time that Barcelona has been chosen to stage the event. Fira de Barcelona also hosted this prestigious medical congress in 1992, 1999, 2009 and 2014. Read more
The European Society of Cardiology Congress is one of the most important scientific events, which brings together specialists from some 140 different countries every year. The 2016 Congress, held in Rome, attracted over 30,000 experts, and more than 11,000 scientific studies were presented during the event.
Although some 150 different cardiovascular topics will be addressed, this year's Congress will focus on Percutaneous Coronary Interventions – PCI, with 500 scientific sessions led by experts. These sessions will concentrate on the areas considered to be of greatest importance: diagnosis, treatment of cardiovascular disease and scientific research.
As mentioned earlier, this year's European Society of Cardiology Congress will take place at the Gran Vía site of Fira de Barcelona. This is one of the largest trade fair complexes in Europe and it was designed by the Japanese architect Toyo Ito, winner of the 2013 Pritzker Prize. This venue is located in Hospitalet de Llobregat, very close to Barcelona, with excellent transport connections. The European Society of Cardiology Congress at the Gran Vía exhibition centre is very easy to reach by public transport, taxi or private vehicle. From Barcelona, you can take the metro (line L9), train (Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya - FGC) or bus (lines H12, 79, 46 and 65).
If you are going to attend the 2017 European Society of Cardiology Congress, we would recommend reserving in advance. Not only should account be taken of more than 30,000 specialists visiting Barcelona, but this is also one of the times of year when a great many tourists come to the city.

An address to know when visiting Barcelona; What a pleasure after a day of discovery to return to this remain of peace that adjoins the Sagrada Familia where you feel at home. The area is lively but the apartment is very quiet, well equipped (value for money unbeatable in Barcelona) Many shops, transport nearby ... Pure happiness!

PHENOMENAL apartment. It's absolutely massive, plenty of room for people to hang out collectively in one space, or spread out. Rooms are comfortable, all windows have blackout shades you can pull closed (helped a lot with jetlag). Beds are comfortable, baths and showers are lovely. There's plenty of ensuites to help keep people happy. We were a group of 9 adults and thought it was perfect. Also SUPER walkable to nearly everything you could want/need. Wish we had the opportunity to stay longer.

The property was exactly as advertised. We had quiet nights as the bedrooms were away from the street and separated from the kitchen/living room. The property was very clean and due to our extended stay the additional cleaning service was very appreciated. This location is perfect for those who enjoy walking as many sights were within walking distance. An excellent coffee shop was around the corner and an impressive grocery store was down the street. Our family (including young children) had a fine time. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.
Dear Mrs. Broderick,
We are so happy to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and felt well taken care of. The truth is that it is a little bit complicated to find a more central apartment!
It is so nice to know that you both and the children enjoyed the space. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

Gorgeous apartment! Our stay was absolutely lovely. The space is stylish and clean with an amazing view overlooking the city. It’s also central to many restaurants/cafes and easy access to further neighborhoods and tourist attractions. The space fit our group of 10 very comfortably with three nice large bathrooms and comfortable beds. The common area is bright and welcoming with a kitchen conducive for gathering and entertaining. As is the beautiful rooftop terrace + pool! We would absolutely stay there again.
We are so glad to see that you had a great stay at the apartment and liked it that much. It is also so nice to see that you enjoyed our rooftop terrace. Thank you for this fantastic comment. It has been a pleasure to host you. We hope to see you again soon.
