Catalan Regional Government Building (Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya) Tours

Catalan Regional Government Building (Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya)
Plaça de Sant Jaume’s Catalan Regional Government Building (Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya) is much more than just a building with a pretty neoclassical façade: this is the seat of the Catalan government, from where 100 presidents have governed. Constructed between the 15th and 17th centuries, the building is a symbol of Catalan perseverance, having stood the test of time through many historic challenges.

It’s not just special because of its history, either. Apart from the attractive dome-topped exterior, its interior is perhaps even more impressive. It features a Gothic chapel, elaborate ceremonial halls, loads of paintings and sculptures, and a sunlight-filled Courtyard of Orange Trees, or Pati dels Tarongers — among other Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance elements.

Practical Info

While the interior is considered by many to be the highlight of the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya, it is only open to the public the second and fourth weekends of the month (except in August). It is only visit-able via prescheduled guided tour (which lasts roughly an hour), so be sure to book online in advance via the Generalitat’s website.
Address: Plaça de Sant Jaume, 4, Barcelona, Catalonia 08002, Spain

Catalan Independence Tour - The Politics of SecessionCultural Tours

Catalan Independence Tour - The Politics of Secession

This tour through the Old City of Barcelona will investigate both historical and cultural reasons why many, but certainly not a majority, of Catalans feel the need for their regional government to push towards statehood. On October 27th, 2017, due to an ‘illegal’ referendum, Spain shut down the Catalan parliament and issued arrest warrants for all of the Regional Ministers, including the President, Carles Puigdemont. As of February 2019, thirteen ministers are undergoing a lengthy treason trial in Madrid and Puigdemont lives in exile between Brussels and Berlin. How did this all come about? How long has this issue been bubbling under the surface? How could the stand-off impact the future of the European Union? Would Spain concede territory that it appropriated over 300 years ago? Is there a renewed threat of an armed struggle? These are just some of the questions we will address, from all sides of the political spectrum.
