Located in the City of the Three Cultures, the Toledo Congress Centre has cutting-edge meeting and event facilities. Designed by the architect Príncipe de Asturias prize and Pritzker winner Rafael Moneo, the Congress Centre has been fully incorporated into the city. The modern edifice squeezes comfortably into the historic heart of the city, hanging upon a cliff side. The project seeks to integrate the cultural heritage into a more established framework of function and rationality. The five-floor building has a multipurpose room for 6,000 occupants, six smaller multipurpose rooms, and parking for 600 vehicles. Ramps, lifts, and stairs connect the steep vertical climb. The Plaza de Zocodover stands nearby and the city’s gardens sit directly below.
The Toledo Congress Centre covers 12 000 m² and it is divided into multiple rooms and spaces catering both to the needs of small groups or those of major events, such as congresses and conventions. Poltrona Frau Contract supplied and installed 1000 “Circa” armchair designed by Rafael Moneo initially for the National Auditorium of Barcelona project in 1999.
