The Workshop will take place in the centre of the town of Zaragoza, at the old 'Paraninfo building'. It was the ancient Faculty of Medicine and Sciences at Zaragoza, the first official Faculty of these matters in Spain. 
Paraninfo Building
Paseo de Pamplona 1 (opposite Plaza Basilio Paraíso 4)
50005 Zaragoza, Spain. Tel: (34) 976 484 586
In this Faculty taught the most eminent doctor in the history of Medicine in Aragón: Santiago Ramón y Cajal, who won the Nobel Prize of Medicine in 1906 (a statue in his honour can be seen at the main staircase of the building). 

The fascinating work of local Miguel Servet (Michael Servetus, born in the region), who was first in correctly describing the function of pulmonary circulation in 1553, are also recognised in form of a statue at the main entrance of the building. Finally, it is worth mentioning too, that in 1923, when Einstein visited Zaragoza –as part of his scientific visit to Spain- he gave a series of lectures on relativity and on the philosophical implications of his theories, and they were all delivered in this same building.
