Torre Mapfre

Designed by Íñigo Ortíz and Enrique de León on the occasion of the Olympics in 1992, Torre Mapfre is one of the most iconic buildings in Barcelona, due to its height -154 meters (505ft) height, distributed in 44 floors, as well as its unique location by the sea at Vila Olímpica.

The fellowship will be held on the 33rd floor where the TMC offices are located, complete with a gorgeous view of the entire city.

In terms of safety in relation to COVID-19, we will follow any restrictions and recommendations as provided by the Spanish government and the Torre Mapfre management at the time of the fellowship. We will evaluate the situation and inform participants of current rules and recommendations that we feel are best for the safety and comfort of the group.
