About Barcelona City History Museum

Views: 540. Updated: Sep 21, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

This is a museum dedicated to the history of Barcelona with strong focus on the Roman period. The museum is a collection of buildings:

Casa Padelles

Is a Gothic palace, originally located at number 25, Carrer Mercaders, in Barcelona. Due to the construction of the Via Laietana in the early 20th century, The building was disassembled in 1931 and relocated to the Plaza del Rei, in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. Palau Padelles was built between 1497 and 1515 at the intersection of the Carrer Mercaders and Carrer Tarasco.

Count's Royal Palace and Greater Royal Palace

Is a complex of buildings that were the residence of the counts of Barcelona and Kings of Aragon. It can be described as three buildings:

Tinell Hall, built 1359 to 1362 by King Peter.

The Palatine chapel of Saint Agatha built during the reign of King James II around 1302.

Lloctinent Palace built by the Catalan Generalitat under Charles V around 1549.

In the basement the remains of the roman town of Barcino (Barcelona) were found and are preserved with a spectacular walkway route through the old streets.
