Casa de America is located in the center of Madrid on the Paseo de Recoletos, 2 (in the Plaza de Cibeles).
The mission of Casa de America is to promote a better understanding between Latin America and Spain. To this end, it acts as an active and dynamic center for the development of a variety of activities, promoting debate, reflection and research on issues of cultural, artistic, ideological, social, scientific, technological, economic and political content. The idea is to create an objective and open forum and meeting place aimed at the diffusion of those elements that, in some way, might help tighten the links that unite the countries that make up the Community of Latin American Nations, as well as tighten institutional relations between America and Europe.
