Escala d’Honor – Ajuntament de Barcelona by neobit

The Staircase of Honour

This staircase leads from the ground floor vestibule to the Gothic Gallery and the “Saló de Cent”. On the way up we find the city coat of arms in stone which was originally located at the old Gate of St. Antoni. Two tapestries “of the Councillors” depict the protection provided by the “Consell de Cent” to the citycrafts such as glassmaking: and foreign trade.

Ajuntament de Barcelona by neobit

The Barcelona City Hall is perhaps one of the best known buildings in Barcelona because it is the seat of the City Government, but it is also a testimonial of life in the city, and this is possibly its lesser known aspect.
Located in an area where, since the founding of the city at the end of the first century B.C., the first Barcelonese discussed municipal matters in Latin; it was not until the 14th century that the Councillors again chose this site to build a house for their meetings and to decide in Catalan and with complete autonomy, the future of the city.
From medieval times to the present, this Institution has undergone changes and modifications that have affected the city and its citizens. Changes which have been reflected in the building itself. For this reason, the “Casa de la Ciutat” has become a brief compendium of Barcelona’s history and a museum exhibiting within its walls the works of artists of different ages.

This itinerary will be useful, as a guide, in order to get to know this City Hall better and to observe and discover rooms, pictures and details which are part of our common heritage.
