EuroVegas, Barcelona World and Ferrari Park

11 Sep

Three big proyects are being planned in Spain this week, which will turn upside down the spanish tourist and leisure scenario.

 

EuroVegas

Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson announced the decision to choose Madrid over Barcelona for the multi-billion dollar gambling resort project “EuroVegas”.

This gambling complex would have 36.000 rooms and is supposed to be Europe’s biggest gambling spot, which obviously is a very interesting proposition. However, the American businessman announced that Las Vegas Sands was only willing to finance 35% of the multibillion-euro resort, and that it would demand certain changes in local planning laws.

We can’t wait for the following films to come as “Fear and loathing in Madrid”, “What happens in Madrid…” or even “Hangover: Madrid Edition”.

This image is from Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, a similar proyect from “Las Vegas Sands Corp.

 

But Barcelona also wanted his candy!

Places we love because of their madness. Part II.

2 Sep

Let’s finish the previous post with more of the craziest buildings ever built in spain.

Número Ocho: Ariane 5 at Sevilla’s Expo.

What is it: The Expo Sevilla 92 changed Sevilla completely. Sevilla has always been a traditional city and the Expo opened it to the world. Lots of beatiful buildings are still at the old Expo’s terrains, one of them this Ariane 5 exact copy. There’s no need to go to Cape Kennedy to see rockets!

What do we think when we look at it: ehm… the Ariane 5?

Valencia

Número Nueve: Hungary’s pavilion at Sevilla.

Places we love because of their madness. In Spain, of course.

29 Aug

We wanted to make a small post about the craziest buildings you can find in our lovely country. But after doing some research…Wow… we cannot name all of them in just ONE post!
Let’s start with the ones we already have shown you here in this blog:

Número Uno: La Ciudad de las Ciencias y de las Artes de Valencia.

What is it: With this “short” name we have one of the most revolutionary buildings in Valencia. The whole city was revitalised with this complex of buildings with an opera house, an oceanographic, museums…

What do we think when we look at it: we think of manatees! or armadillos 🙂

Valencia

Número Dos: Sagrada Familia.

Barceloooooonaaaa (Olympic Games Memories)

30 Jul

With the olympic fever burning a hole in our broadcast media, we cannot help having nostalgia pictures crossing our mind (in low-definition, of course).

20 years have passed since the Olympics Games were held in Barcelona, opening  the doors from a city and a country that was waiting to be discovered.

Batman Street Art in Spain

21 Jul

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is nowadays on everyone’s lips, and matching up with the world Premiere of the new movie of the comic heroe,  we can find in Plaza de Callao, one of the most crowded squares in Madrid, a little art surprise:

But also we can find an huge Batman logo cut into a field of crops in Sant Boi de Lluçanés near Barcelona:

The do-it-yourself cathedral (a self-improvement tale)

5 Jul

The majestic ‘Sagrada Familia’ is well known because of its Gaudi’s personal architectural and engineering style, and also because this Cathedral is still  ‘under construction’:

But this is not a story about the billion-times-photographed Sagrada Familia.  It is not the only impressive and unfinished cathedral that you can find in Spain.

Today we are speaking about what is known as ‘The Cathedral of Justo Gallego’.

La Sagrada Familia is placed in the port city of Barcelona, while ‘The cathedral’ is being built miles away inland, in a small town called ‘Mejorada del Campo’  near Madrid.

Antoni Gaudí was a man of exquisit education and was supported by one of catalonia’s biggest fortunes of that time.

Justo Gallego (this storie’s star) is an uneducated farmer and bullfighter. At the age of 36, in the middle of a severe tuberculosis, he promised the Lady of the Pillar he would build a shrine in her honour in exchange of his health.

Now, at the age of 87 this is what he has already achieved:

When Valencia turns into a F1 Circuit.

21 Jun

Yesterday we were reading our friend’s Lucía awesome blog dedicated to the F1, and we discovered a vast F1-world which was unknown for us.

Even though we sometimes think F1 is just driving in circles for a long long long time, lots of people love it. Bets for F1 reach the astronomic levels of 650 Million Euros…and we are only speaking about figures from Spain, we don’t want to even imagine how high can it be worldwide…

This weekend takes place the Grand Prix of Europe in Valencia so we’re taking a closer look to this F1-fever.

Where?

tripNETer was in BizBarcelona

18 Jun

tripNETer was last week in BizBarcelona, the enterpreneurship meeting fair!

We enjoyed it a lot, there was a lot of networking (we even took part of a Speed Networking!) and lots to learn: conferences, enterpreneurs meetings…

The CINC actually used two tripNETer devices to stay connected full time and without limits.

Anyone has also been there? tell us in the comments!
