America’s Cup Building

Veles e Vents, home of the competition

The America’s Cup Building, also known as Veles e Vents, was designed by British architect David Chipperfield and inaugurated in 2006. Its architectural design has received numerous awards.

Meetings and events

Sports and leisure

The building is named after the poem “Veles e Vents” by fifteenth-century poet Ausias March, a remarkable figure of Valencia’s Golden Age.

Built for the audience of the 32nd America’s Cup, its terrace was conceived as an educational, leisure and meeting area. With a privileged location near the beach, this outdoor space also houses many international restaurants and entertainment venues.

Great views of regattas

The terrace

The building is composed of 4 horizontal platforms, one above the other, and features spacious terraces overlooking the city’s port.

This way, it becomes a great place for contemplating the regattas and other events.

The restaurants

A meal with a great view

Previously located on the ground floor of Valencia’s Institute of Modern Art (IVAM), La Sucursal restaurant has moved to the America’s Cup building.

But this Michelin-starred restaurant isn’t the only option for foodies: La Marítima offers Mediterranean food with a fabulous view and MalaBar is ideal for drinks at the terrace.
