About Town Hall in Plaza Sant Jaume

In Roman times the area of Plaza Sant Jaume was the Forum of the town, an open public space used for meetings.

The Current day building, much older than it looks, contains many large halls that have been used for governance of the city over the centuries. An example of which is the Sala de Cent which was used by the council of 100 counts from 1373 till its dissolution in 1714.

The building is by architect Pere Llobet and built in the 14th Century. However the Facade contains features such as statues of King Jaume I and Joan Fivaller in the vaulted niches. They were sculpted by Josep Bover in 1847.
