Congress Centre

The Foundation's headquarters now has the best conditions to be used as a centre for congresses and business meetings, scientific conferences, etc. 

As a congress venue, it offers the following facilities:

  • Assembly room: the old wine cellar has been transformed into an assembly room with capacity for about one hundred people. It is equipped with the most modern audiovisual and technical means.
  • Meeting room (Capilla de los Ocampo): of great architectural beauty, this room allows special receptions, small meetings (from 10 to 25 people) and small seminars.
  • Multipurpose rooms and halls: three highly versatile spaces with capacity for 30 people each.
  • Exhibition Hall (Rector's Chapel): The Exhibition Hall is located in the Rector's Chapel. In addition to its own philosophy, it can be an ideal space to set up a stand during congresses and a noble room to serve a cocktail.
  • Cafeteria: with a panoramic view of the historical centre of the city, the Cafeteria offers the catering services that the centre requires. It has a capacity for sixty people and also functions as a meeting room.
  • Residential area: the Foundation's headquarters has a residential area with 16 rooms for double use. This space is framed around the old cloister, set in a very simple garden area.

The enclave:

Zamora, a Romanesque city

Considered the Romanesque city of the Duero, Zamora is the result of an ancient historical settlement which, starting from the pre-Roman settlement, was consolidated around its second repopulation at the beginning of the 11th century with people from the north of the peninsula. Its golden age is centred on the 12th century and the first half of the 13th century, when the city expanded from west to east, structuring an urban map along the lines of its bourgeois parishes which make its Romanesque architecture one of the most emblematic in the Douro.


Its splendid 12th century Cathedral, with an oriental (Byzantine) dome built on the foundations of the ancient Church of El Salvador in which the future King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques, was knighted.


Special attention should be paid to its excellent walled walls, in which there are more than 14 Romanesque churches of the highest construction rigour.



Its location on the northern terrace of the Duero and on the border with Portugal make this city a strategic enclave for all those who visit it.
