  • Este es uno de mis lugares preferidos en Barcelona, es un palacete

    acogedor y bellísimo, los jardines fueron pensados para que el pequeño Príncipe disfrutara. Michaella estás haciendo un trabajo más que magnífico sobre la ciudad de Barcelona. Felicidades Guapa.

A weekend walk in Barcelona14

  2. 2. The Palau Reial de Pedralbes ("Pedralbes Royal Palace") is a building placed in the middle of an ample garden in the district of Les Corts, in Barcelona. From 1919 until 1931 it was the residence for the Spanish Royal Family when they visited the city. It houses the Museu de la Ceramica (ceramic museum), Museu Tèxtil i d'Indumentària and Museu de les Arts Decoratives (interior design museum), both part of the Disseny Hub Barcelona and is the permanent seat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM).

  6. 6. The palace has its origins in the old Masia (mas or farmer's house) de Can Feliu, from the 17th century. The corresponding land was acquired by the count Eusebi Güell, along with the neighbouring Can Cuiàs de la Riera. Together they formed the Finca Güell, an extensive parcel of land (30,000 m2). The Can Feliu building was remodeled by the architect Joan Martorell i Montells, who built a Caribbean-style small palace, together with a Gothic-style chapel and surrounded by magnificent gardens.
  7. 7. Later the building remodeling was given to Antoni Gaudí, together with the construction of a surrounding perimeter wall and the side entry pavilions. Gaudí also partially designed the gardens surrounding the palace, placing two fountains and a pergola and planted many Mediterranean plants like palm trees, cypress trees, magnolias, pine trees and eucalyptus.
  8. 8. The Font d'Hércules (Hercules fountain) still exists today on site, restored in 1983; it has a bust of Hercules on top of a pillar with Catalonia's shield and a spout in the shape of a Chinese dragon.

  11. 11. Eusebi Güell gave the house and garden to the Royal family, as a thank you for his noble title of Count given to him, in 1918. The house was then remodeled to become a royal palace. The work was done from 1919 to 1924 by the architects Eusebi Bona and Francesc Nebot
  12. 12. In 1924 it was officially made a royal palace but, with the second Spanish Republic's proclamation in 1931, it became property of the city government, which decided to make it a decorative arts museum, inaugurated in 1932. During Francisco Franco's regime it was used as a residence for Franco during his visits to the city. In 1990 the Museu de Ceramica was placed at the palace.
  13. 13. The ceramics museum occupied part of the first and second floors while the ground floor has the throne-room and large salons which are used for public functions. The Ceramics museum has an impressive collections of ceramics and decorative arts, but the palace itself and the beautifully tended terraced grounds of the palace, called "Jardins del Palau de Pedralbes," are also impressive and worth visiting. The "Jardins del Palau de Pedralbes" are free to visit. Admission to the permanent exhibition is free on the first Sunday of every month. Visit the museum website for admission prices.
