Meet your guide at La Casa de la Seda, next to the Palau de la Musica in downtown Barcelona. Begin your tour by admiring the building’s striking façade, as your guide points out the unique Sgraffito decoration, Baroque-style windows and beautiful balconies.
Then, learn how the guild house was built in the 18th-century as the headquarters for the Art of Silk Association, as you step inside the ‘House of Silk’. Follow your guide into the exquisite guild room with its plush furnishings and silk lined walls. Peek into the presidential office, where the highlight is an ivory depiction of Christ, and browse the library, where over three thousand important documents and historic parchments are displayed.
After learning about the art of silk making and marveling at the elaborate interior design, end your tour with a glass of cava.
