Juan Carlos I Station opened on January 1988 and is managed by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

It is located on the South-West coast of Livingston Island, about 20 NM far from the other Spanish station Gabriel de Castilla which is situated on the neighbouring Deception Island.

Juan Carlos 1 Station is only inhabited during the summer seasons, from mid-November to mid-March, although automated registers are kept running all year long but today the Spanish authorities thanks to the new buildings are planning to occupy the station right trough the year in the near future.
