Vertical garden and terrace of the Europa Congress Palace - Tourism in Vitoria-Gasteiz
The Europa Congress Palace has become an icon of sustainable architecture. It was the first conference building in Spain to attain the Passivhaus XXL certification and features a large vegetal façade and a rooftop with views of the city's inner Green Belt.
Since its last comprehensive refurbishment, the façade of the Palace has a vertical garden that covers almost 1,500 square metres, with over 33,000 different species of plants from Álava and the Basque Country. This vegetal façade has improved the building's thermal and acoustic insulation, reducing its energy consumption.
The rooftop terrace offers views over the green urban passage of the Avenida Gasteiz. You can also enjoy a fragrant garden there, included in the itinerary of the building's guided tours.
