Technical Tour

The Technical Tour for OMAE 2018 combines industry expertise and sightseeing together in one full day. Join us on Friday, June 22nd for a full day tour that will begin with a visit to the CEHIPAR ocean basin, an internationally recognized hydrodynamic center for model tests, projects and research, and one of the largest basins in the world.

After the morning visit to CEHIPAR, tour attendees will stop for lunch in El Pardo at Restaurante El Torreon, situated high on the hills of Monte de El Pardo. Enjoy a three-course meal amongst the oak forests and be treated to panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

After lunch the group will embark on a half day tour of Segovia, a historic city to the northwest of Madrid and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Segovia is famous for its picturesque setting amongst the plains of Old Castile in the autonomous region of Castile and León. During the tour of Segovia, attendees will see a variety of sites including one of the best preserved Roman Aqueducts, believed to have been built during the 1st century AD, and the Segovia Cathedral whose 90-metre-high bell towers can be seen towering over the town. Built in the mid sixteenth century, the Segovia Cathedral is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is one of the last Gothic temples to be built in Europe. Other stops include the Alcázar Castle with its ship like shape, and a walk through a genuine Jewish Quarter, where attendees will learn about the days of the Spanish Inquisition when the Jewish families living in Segovia were forced to abandon their homes.

The Technical Tour is designed as a full day tour for conference participants and Accompanying Persons will have the option to join lunch and the visit to Segovia.
