City Hall, also known as the Casa de la Ciutat, stands on one side of the Plaça Sant Jaume, right in the middle of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and in front of the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya. The neoclassical façade conceals Gothic gems such as the historic Great Hall, or Saló de Cent, designed by Pere Llobet and built in the 14th century. There is a tourist office on the ground floor of the building The Plaça Sant Jaume has also been called "Constitution Square" in various historical periods, and this name appeared on a plaque on the façade of the City Hall.

  • The image of archangel Raphael that crowns the door. The name of its author is not exactly known, but it could be Pere Ça Anglada, who is known to have done the bronze wings. Arnau Bargués finished off the whole length of the façade with a carved parapet that is divided into several segments by pillars that end in pinnacles and gargoyles that represent a couple of human figures and a repertoire of fantastic animals. As it may be reaps in a stone slab, the façade of the building was not completed until 1550, with the placing, in the jutting out angles of the corner volumes, of the statues of Saints Eulàlia and Sever.

    1. 1. Barcelona - Casa de la Ciutat - City Council http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1930240-walk-barcelona20/
    2. 2. City Hall, also known as the Casa de la Ciutat, stands on one side of the Plaça Sant Jaume, right in the middle of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter and in front of the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya. The neoclassical façade conceals Gothic gems such as the historic Great Hall, or Saló de Cent, designed by Pere Llobet and built in the 14th century.
    3. 3. In the ancient Roman city of Barcelona, the Plaça Sant Jaume was the site of the Forum, the meeting place and stage for political debate. It could be said that the square continues to fulfill the same role today, as it is flanked by Barcelona’s two political powerhouses: Barcelona City Hall and the seat of the Catalan government, the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya. Historically speaking, the city’s first form of government was the Consell de Cent, or Council of the One Hundred, which used to meet in the Great Hall, the Saló de Cent, from 1373 until it was dissolved in 1714.

    11. 11. The old façade in Carrer de la Ciutat, is a consequence of the decision of forming a small access plaza to the building by widening the street. Later, in 1399, master Arnau Bargués was hired to build a new door to dignify the humble façade of the clerk's rooms. Over them a moulding decorated with rampant leaves that goes from the outer side of the arch. Over the door, he placed three coats of arms carved in 1400 by Jordi Johan. Arcangel San Rafael, atribuido a Pere Sanglada
