Catalan Regional Government Building (Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya) Tours

Catalan Regional Government Building (Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya)
Plaça de Sant Jaume’s Catalan Regional Government Building (Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya) is much more than just a building with a pretty neoclassical façade: this is the seat of the Catalan government, from where 100 presidents have governed. Constructed between the 15th and 17th centuries, the building is a symbol of Catalan perseverance, having stood the test of time through many historic challenges.

It’s not just special because of its history, either. Apart from the attractive dome-topped exterior, its interior is perhaps even more impressive. It features a Gothic chapel, elaborate ceremonial halls, loads of paintings and sculptures, and a sunlight-filled Courtyard of Orange Trees, or Pati dels Tarongers — among other Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance elements.

Practical Info

While the interior is considered by many to be the highlight of the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya, it is only open to the public the second and fourth weekends of the month (except in August). It is only visit-able via prescheduled guided tour (which lasts roughly an hour), so be sure to book online in advance via the Generalitat’s website.
Address: Plaça de Sant Jaume, 4, Barcelona, Catalonia 08002, Spain

star-5
This Tour will give you a quick insight into the rich and complex history of Barcelona. On a relaxed walk through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and El Borne district we will follow the footsteps of its ancestors and learn more about different epochs and personalities that shaped the history of this heroic city over 2000 years. Founded by the Romans in 1c.BC, Barcelona still embraces part of its origins inside the medieval buildings. During prosperous times of Kingdom of Aragon, it was one of central ports of medieval Sea-trade with many merchant and diplomatic delegations established in the city. The Jewish community, living in El Call, also helped in consolidation of culturally rich and cosmopolitan spirit over centuries until 1492, when Iberian Peninsula stopped being homeland for all 3 religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Eventually we will learn more about the political changes after the War of Spanish Succession (1702-1715), still echoing today.
