Casa de la Ciutat is located in the center of the old town. The city hall building is beautiful while entry thereat is free. It is good to stroll around the square in the frontage and to look at the internal arrangements if time permits.

I visited during St George's Day when they open to the public. Such a beautiful building, and a very interesting visit. Recommended if you happen to be around for April 23rd! (Saint Jordi is the patron saint of Catalunya.)

usually you can not visit the city hall, but for Santa Eulalia they opened the doors and there was a loooong queue to get in and walk through the assembly halls and the mayors office. However, I found little in there that I liked, and...More
