The Hotel El Palace Barcelona collaborates with Aflote Barcelona, contributing the corks from our bottles so that they can recycle them, manufacturing pieces designed by renowned artists who donate their designs and thus facilitating a job for vulnerable people.
Until now, the glass from wine and cava bottles was recycled, but not the cork from their stoppers. With this material as a raw material, designers and artists work selflessly to give it added value, as an object and example that together we can invent a new ideology to save the planet, helping those who inhabit it and need it most: collective generosity. A wise man, Jorge Wagensberg, said it, and we want to make it possible.
We launched a charity project, “El Palace Charity Stay: You Stay, You Care, You Rock,” involving the sale of five vouchers to stay in the El Palace Suite by Ronnie Wood. The proceeds of these sales will be donated entirely to the Barcelona food bank (Banc dels Aliments de Barcelona) and the YoMeCorono foundation. Through this charity project, we hope to help alleviate the health and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are concerned about malnutrition and for this reason we weekly prepare and donate food to the ALPAN foundation. Alpan was born in 1999 by Mr. José María Sogel, from the Rotary Club of Madrid, the first Rotary club in Spain.
The initiative consists in distributing food prepared by Hotels and Restaurants for free to solidarity canteens who feed the ones most in need. The solidarity canteens members of the ALPAN Project are linked to churches in the centre of Barcelona, and mainly host older people with little family support and lack of resources.
Cottolengo del Padre Alegre is a religious institution since 1932 thanks to the commitment of Father Jacinto Alegre Pujals.

El Palace Barcelona supports this institution by donating food but also furniture and textiles when possible.
