  • Located in the central Piazza San Jaume (easily accessible via de Ferran located on las ramblas) is the seat of the regional Government of Catalonia that recently has been the focus of controversial political situation. The building is very beautiful, imposing, elegant in its austerity. Is not open to the public.

  • Seat of Catalan presidency & government where decisions are made. Events held here too.Historically was a representative parliamentary assembly sharing power with monarch,one of first type in Europe. First President was Berenuer de Cruilles in 1359 at Cervera! The Palau became permanent seat of Catalan govt. in 1400. Main facade is one of best Renaissance style buildings in Catalonia.
  • A must to visit in Barcelona downtown. It’s located around the Gothic district.
  • America and Europe refuse to accept the democratic vote of the Crimean electorate for peaceful reunification with Russia, following the Kiev putsch. Will the decision of the good Catalan people to decide their own future also be rejected by Brussels and Washington? Will the electoral results of the Catalan democratic vote be accepted by Russia? Will Catalunya also suffer from boycotts and economic sanctions if they vote for independence? If the Catalan vote is indeed recognised, will Crimea's vote for self-determination also be accepted? Or will Europe apply different legal and moral standards to democratic voters in Catalunya and Crimea? Catalunya and Crimea: both courageously dare to exercise self-determination and vote democratically to peacefully decide their own future, despite threats from Big Brother
  • Building with great political and historical importance. Only open for visitors at special occasions like the Catalan independence day. Very much worth a visit.
  • Seat of one of the oldest democratic institutions in the World. From 1359.
