  • The building received the Apex 2003 Award for best Congress Centre in the world.
  • It takes its name of "Astilleros Euskalduna" from a shipbuilding company that went out of business during the 1980's.
  • The Euskalduna Jauregia was built for multiple uses, including classical music and opera concerts, international and national congresses, corporate presentations, and political rallies.
  • The building has four auditoriums with the largest having a capacity of 2,200 and the smallest a capacity of 200 people.
  • The scenary at the main auditorium is the biggest of its kind in Spain and the second biggest in Europe with 1,770 square meters.
  • This building was built instead of World Trade Center Bilbao.
  • With vacancy rates of about 5%, Euskalduna Jauregia is nearly full throughout the year. Low rates encouraged the construction of BEC Congress Centre, the second Congress Centre in the city.

  • There are two restaurants in the building with a capacity to serve more than a thousand people. The cook at one of the restaurants is Antonio Canales, one of the most recognized chefs in the Basque Country.
