About the location
The Gothic chapel of the Convent dels Àngels is one of the spaces of The Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). A sixteenth-century Gothic building with an intensely rich history, the Convent dels Àngels has been the object of a respectful conversion conducted by the architects Lluís Clotet and Ignacio Aparicio. Belonging to Barcelona’s historical heritage, it is divided into several spaces, some of which can be counted among the most beautiful examples of Gothic architecture in the city.
This event takes place during the ESMO Congress which is the appointment in Europe for clinicians, researchers, patient advocates, journalists and the pharmaceutical industry from all over the world to get together, learn about the latest advances in oncology and translate science into better cancer patient care.
