One of the main draws for our visit was to see the Roman history embedded in and outside this building.

Outside it incorporated a Roman Tower and inside a couple of the original Roman arches that previously supported the aqueduct was excavated.

The courtyard was filled with colorful tile art, a fountain and a tall palm tree that were nice to view along with the unique mailbox slot in front.

Good for a short visit before or after visiting the Barcelona Cathedral. It was free to enter.

Casa de l’Ardiaca near the cathedral. Now the home to the city’s archives it had beautiful tiling and also the remnants of the Roman aqueduct within its walls - it was once the residence of the Archdeacon.

Very lovely house with a beautiful garden, a bit hidden but very close to Catedral de Barcelona. You can see here a roman city wall, a nice fountain with a very old palm tree and also a nice marble-mail box with three swallows and a turtle. Definitely worth the stop if you are in the area, entry is free.

Next to the Roman city wall is the entrance to the Casa de l'Ardiaca from the 12th century. This medieval work was in 1924 declared a Heritage of cultural interest. The architect Domènech i Montaner added to the Renaissance portal a unique marble-mail box with three swallows . In the courtyard of the house a palm tree was planted in the late19th century and next to it is a fountain. One of the most beautiful gothic buildings in Barcelona, ​​just behind the cathedral .The patio with fountain in the center is very beautiful, a very cozy atmosphere. Free entrance.

There is an artistic postbox right outside with a figure of a turtle that gives good luck to those who touch it! Inside there are plants and a fountain. Peaceful.

From a small entrance (with the most lavish letter box) off a passage perpendicular to the entrance steps to the Cathedral, you are led into the most peaceful courtyard to sit and recover from sightseeing and all the tourist crowds, with working fountain and hanging vegetation. Wander up the staircase to the open upper level for unusual views of the Cathedral.
And for once the experience is free!

It is a peaceful spot in the city to see flowers, tile and listen to the fountain. It also has a wheelchair ramp to the entrance but not to the upstairs. Good place for families as well to look around. The historical information is only in Catalan otherwise I would have rated this higher.

A bit hard to find, even the staff in the church office didn't know where this was. It's just around the back of the cathedral, the right side then to the left. We'd read the history and wanted to see it. Beautiful tile work and the famous Palm tree. Take a minute to go upstairs to a small photo gallery.

Being so close to the cathedral I suspect a lot of people walk past this building en route to other places but it is a lovely little courtyard with a nice fountain and palm tee. Not much else to see but worth popping in for a few minutes on your way past.
