Cultural Promotion

The Modernist building Fòrum Berger Balaguer was constructed between 1910 and 1914 by the architects Santiago Güell y M. Cosquillat. The Obra Social of Caixa Penedès purchased the building in 1978 and, after a deep process of restoring, transformation and adaptation of some rooms, on the 22nd of December 1986, on the occasion of the inauguration of the convention hall "Culture hall", it was opened to the public. After that, the meeting rooms of the upper floor were adapted and the Auditorium was set up in order to adapt it to the new technologies and to the increasing demand of event celebration. Thanks to that reform, the Fòrum Berger Balaguer opens its doors to people and entities, making available for them four emblematic spaces totally equipped: the Culture Hall, the Auditorium, meeting rooms and the House-Museum Berger Balaguer, to celebrate expositions, concerts, conferences, meetings and other activities in one of the most centric and original environments of Vilafranca del Penedès.
