About Playing Cards Museum in former Cathedrals archdeacon house

Next to the Roman city wall is the entrance to the house of the Archdeacon from the 12th Century, the Gothic-Renaissance residence of the archdeacon, which in 1920 became the property of the City of Barcelona and houses the historical archive of Barcelona.

The architect Domenech i Montaner added to the Renaissance portal a unique marble-mail box with three swallows , as well as a turtle, work of the sculptor Alfons Juyol.

This building was constructed within the remains of the old Roman city wall and extending out the front of the building from Plaza de Cathederal we can see the remains of the roman viaduct that brought fresh water into the city
