Visiting Catalan Parliament Old Citadel Buildings

From the outside the parliament building still looks very much the same as it did when it was designed by the architect and military engineer Jorge Próspero de Verboom. The building consists of two storeys and an attic space set out on a cross-shaped ground plan with a central dome and four inner courtyards.

The building is made from stone quarried on Montjuïc hill and terracotta tiles, and is decorated with the busts of prominent figures associated with Catalan art. These date from the extension carried out at the beginning of the 20th century when the building housed the art museum.
