Visit our Supercomputer

BSC-CNS hosts MareNostrum, the most powerful supercomputer in Spain. In March 2004 the Spanish government and IBM signed an agreement to build one of the the fastest computer in Europe.

Visits to MareNostrum will be suspended from March 15 until July as we are upgrading the supercomputer.

Please contact visits [at] bsc [dot] es if you want to plan a visit after the upgrade or if you have any other questions


BSC allows to visit the MareNostrum supercomputer housed in the Torre Girona chapel. All visits will be led by personnel from the center and will include a guided visit to the supercomputer.

The visit lasts approximately 30-45 minutes and consists of a video presentation of the center and the supercomputer, followed by a tour of the facilities. BSC will not make visits on public holidays.

We can schedule your visit to the BSC on Monday - Thursday (09h - 19h) and Friday (09h - 13h)
