Face the Facade

Barcelona’s city hall building dates back to the 14th century, and over the years has become a collage of architectural styles. The neo-classical façade is its more conservative “new” face, but head around the corner and see the decorative Catalan Gothic former entrance. Aside from its looks, the city hall has a lot of historical, political and artistic significance: the Consell de Cent, which had power throughout the Renaissance, governed from here, and the famous artists featured include Clarà and Subirachs. Entrance is free, but you must be part of a guided tour to enter. English guides start at 11am on Sundays and last a half hour.
