The Palau Baró de Quadras opens its doors every Saturday and offers dramatized guided tours

From 28th January the Palau Baró de Quadras, home of the Institut Ramon Llull, will be opening its doors to the general public every Wednesday and Saturday, with guided tours available in Catalan, Spanish and English. There will also be dramatized guided tours one Friday every month.


Managed by the company Cases Singulars, the Palau Baró de Quadras can already be visited every Wednesday and Saturday of the year, in the latter case from Saturday 28th January onwards. On the tour, you can see the entrance hall, the two external facades and the main floor. The tours, given by expert guides, last for 45 minutes and are available in three languages: English at 11 a.m., Catalan at 12 noon, and Spanish at 1 p.m.

The monthly dramatized guided tours will feature a governess and a cook, the domestic servants who lived in the house, who will receive visitors and explain the story of the De Quadras family, Modernisme and the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. The dramatized guided tours have been scheduled for the following Fridays: 20th January, 10th February, 17th March, 21st April, 19th May and 16th June.

Finally, visits are offered for groups who have made a compulsory advance booking on Wednesday mornings and afternoons and Saturday mornings; there is also the possibility to arrange combined visits to both the Palau Baró de Quadras and Casa Ametller.

Standing halfway between La Pedrera and the Casa de les Punxes, the Palau Baró de Quadras is one of Barcelona’s Modernista jewels. It has been listed as a Historical and Artistic Monument of National Interest since 1976, and it is a reference point for Modernisme in the city.
