Great to visit another heritage site that is still used for local government meetings but the public are actively encouraged to pop in and visit. No entrance fee and a really informative guide as you enter, glad that I did go in.

This is a very grand late gothic building. At the time of our visit there was an exhibition celebrating the history of city government and the armorial symbol of the Generalitat. This included some interesting display cases and a very imaginative animated film. Upstairs one...More
