The European Council, founded in 1949, has been based in the Palais de l'Europe since 1977. It is a huge building of 64,000 square metres which employs thousands of people to promote democracy, the rights of Man and communication between nations. 1350 offices and the largest semi-circular auditorium in Europe are necessary to contain about 40 member states and many visitors. This is the best known modern building in Strasbourg.
