This wonderful building is well-known as the headquarters of Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (Menendez Pelayo International University). It was built in 1909 and became the summer retreat of Alfonso XIII in 1913, and the Royal Family continued using it until 1930. In 1977, along with the rest of the peninsula , it was taken over by the city to become a public park. The building has since undergone an ambitious refit and is now equipped with all the latest technology for conferences and meetings. There are around 20 conference rooms as well as dining rooms. Facilities include air conditioning, a simultaneous translation system, CCTV, loudspeakers, video units, Internet connections and computers. The building is only open during conferences and in the summer months when it is used by students and teachers.
