Neo-Classical palace, which housed many noble families.

Carrer de la Portaferrissa, 1 08002 Barcelona

As you walk along the famous La Rambla, the first notable building you’ll see is Palau Moja  – the 18th century residential palace executed in Neo-Classical style. The construction took almost 10 years, and since its inauguration in 1784, the palace housed noble families, marquises and counts; including Spain’s former king, Juan Carlos I, who once stayed in the palace still as a price. Unfortunately, the palace, which treasures massive collection of art objects, paintings and gilded ornaments and pieces of furniture, is not accessible for a general public. It only opens on particular days of the year, other than that, it operates as the main office of the Cultural Heritage Department of the Catalan Government Ministry of Culture.
