Alfredo Kraus Auditorium
The largest cultural events on the island take place in this distinctive building.
An emblem of modernity.
This symbol of island culture was built in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria between 1993 and 1997, turning into one of the most unique and modern buildings in the whole city. This was a project that was carried out by the well-known architect Óscar Tusquets, who came up with the design of a lighthouse that stands on the upper part of the building, so that it could be distinguished on the horizon; so much is the case that this has turned into the most recognized part of this auditorium. Some of Gran Canaria's main events take place in the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium, such as the "Festival de Cine" (film festival), or the "Festival de Música de Canarias" (Canarian Music Festival), which are the island's biggest attractions. Inside the auditorium, its enormous hexagonal-shaped symphony hall measures more than 1,600 m² with a capacity of 1,650 spectators. The grandeur of its enormous window through which you can see the Atlantic, turns this auditorium into one of Spain's most spectacular concert halls.
