This test detects the existence of active virus infection. It is recommended for symptomatic patients who have been in close contact. Although the technique used in the clinic takes slightly longer (approximately 30 min.), the results are more accurate and reliable.

Download here the map for the meetings at Baluarte. 

Opened in 2003 and designed by the architect Francisco Javier Mangado, the Baluarte Congress Center and Auditorium of Navarra was built in order to become a meeting point for science, art and culture. It is one of the biggest auditoriums in Spain. It receives its name due to the remains of San Anton’s bastion, which was destroyed at the end of the 19th century. These remains were discovered during the construction of the building.

This building is located in the center of Pamplona-Iruña, next to other emblematic buildings such as the Citatel or Navarra’s Parliament. It is a three-floor, modern construction in the shape of an L. From the outside, it is seen as a big, dark-gray granite block. However, on the inside, it turns out to be a heart-warming space with wooden walls that hold three exposition rooms (The Wall, Lower Floor and Mezzanine) and three conference rooms (Gola, Boulevard and Crown). This building also holds two big concert rooms: the Symphony Room or Main Auditorium (1.560 people) and the Chamber Hall (500 people).

This architectural work hosts a great number of artists and events every year due to its extensive activity program. The Baluarte Congress Center and Auditorium of Navarra is, therefore, a gathering place that combines the technological necessities of the 21st century and the homelike atmosphere of the center of a welcoming city such as Pamplona-Iruña.
