After these visits Felipe VI and Letizia travelled to Vitoria, where they visited the San Prudencio Foundation's new headquarters.

San Prudencio is a charity dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility, which brings together nearly 400 companies and over 3,000 workers, and of which Iberdrola is a prominent member.
