The Banquet Dinner will be held on Tuesday March 15 at Les Drassanes Reials (Barcelona’s royal shipyards), which is a highly valuable example of civil Gothic architecture.
Drassanes Reials (Royal Shipyards) is an outstanding architectural building with 700 years of history situated in the historic centre of Barcelona. These gothic shipyards are an extraordinary piece of civilian architecture. Today the broad arches shelter the Museu Marítim, the city’s seafaring-history museum and one of the most fascinating museums in the city. Begun in the 13th century and completed by 1378, the long, arched bays (the highest arches reach 13m) once sloped off as slipways directly into the water, which lapped the seaward side of the Drassanes until at least the end of the 18th century.
