Parlament de Catalunya

POINTS OF INTEREST

Parlament de Catalunya

Once the arsenal for the Ciutadella—as evidenced by the thickness of the building's walls—this is the only surviving remnant of Felipe V's fortress. For a time it housed the city's museum of modern art, before it was repurposed to house the unicameral Catalan Parliament. Under Franco, the Generalitat–-the regional government–-was suppressed, and the Hall of Deputies was shut fast for 37 years. Call or go online to book and schedule a free 45-minute guided tour of the building in English; the grand "Salon Rose" is worth a visit in itself.
