finished in 1952. This two-storey Palace was constructed
in the Gothic style, with the support of the architects Pere
Compte and Joan Guivarro. They designed the patio and the
first two storeys to lead to an uncovered staircase so that
doors, patio, staircase and the later façade would conserve
their original Gothic character.

The oldest part of the construction is the door that faces
Caballeros street (1481) and the most modern are the 16
small arches in the attic (1541). Inside there are renaissance
jewels of exceptional beauty such as the coffered ceiling in
the so-called Salón Dorado (Golden Room).
