This city hall flanks one side of the square Placa de Sant Jaume. This ancient building is well preserved, beautiful facade, with nice sculptures and flags right at the top. Drop by to take some nice photos in this Gothic Quarter.

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.)

It is a MUST see architecture with beautiful interiors. Some people may not be aware that one can visit the City Hall. Entrance is free and it is amazing inside all the rooms which are decorative and ornated. History speaks for itself. There are no...More
