Since last July 2013, Casa Asia Headquarters has moved to the premises of its new social headquarters: Sant Manuel Pavilion, located within Sant Pau’s Modernist Venue in Barcelona, Spain.
The institution is relocated in this new space where it carry out its activities and programmes and it will leave the Palace Baró de Quadras, where it has been established during the last ten years.

Casa Asia Headquarter Visits
Sant Manuel Pavilion hosts the offices of Casa Asia’s staff, as well as classrooms and lecture halls for its usual programming. Apart from the timetable with programmed activities, the headquarters is not conceptualized to be visited, as it was in our previous building, Baró de Quadras Palace.
However, Sant Pau's Modernist Venue, by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner and World Heritage by UNESCO, can be visited. All the information is available at http://www.santpaubarcelona.org.
Acces to Sant Manuel Pavilion
Everytime there is a programmed activity (courses, lectures or film sessions), Casa Asia will set up the access to Sant Manuel Pavilion with prior accreditation of every user. Therefore, it will be necessary to follow the registration instructions to the activities.
Casa Asia Media Library, centre of resources and multimedia reference documentation in the country, reopens its doors on the 25th of February 2014 to continue offering loan service, bibliographic advising and consultation. Public Attention Timetable: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10.00am to 3.00pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3.00pm to 7.00pm.

Sant Pau’s Modernist Venue
With this change of location, Casa Asia joins the project promoted by Barcelona City Council and the Government of Catalonia (Generalitat) of bringing together international institutions at the Modernist group of Sant Pau, because it is planned to become a reference centre within this field in a couple of years.
Sant Pau's Modernist Venue, designed by the architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner, is a landmark of heritage and culture of the city of Barcelona in particular, and Catalonia in general. In 1997 was declared World Heritage by UNESCO due to its architectural uniqueness and artistic beauty. The Private Foundation Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is the institution in charge of managing the monumental and artistic heritage of its Modernist Venue. Its Board, the Most Illustrious Administration is made up equally of the Government of Catalonia (Generalitat), Barcelona City Council and the Cathedral Chapter.
