Inaugurated in October 1970, the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones De Torremolinos (Torremolinos Convention Centre) is based on a project designed in 1967 by the architects Rafael De La Hoz and Gerardo Olivares James on behalf of the Promotores De La Costa del Sol cooperative. The building, which became state property in 1971, is organic in nature and its construction was a milestone on the Costa del Sol and Andalusia as a whole, leading as it did to a huge growth in congress tourism.
The centre is located on a 70,000 square metre site, 18,000 metres of which are taken up by gardens. The building is organized on a circular floor plan around which the different Congress auditoriums, committee rooms, secretarial areas and other annexes are distributed. The Central hall is presided over by its most iconic feature, very much an emblem of congress and business tourism in Spain: its large translucent dome with a unique crystal lamp in the centre of the radial cut ceiling, which gives the effect of a waterfall like cascade pouring down from above.
