The celebrations feature debates and specialised visits to the singular construction located on Carrer Nou de la Rambla.
It was five years ago that Palau Güell reopened to the public after undergoing extensive rehabilitation work. That was an important event for the city, allowing citizens and visitors to have access to what has become one of the main attractions of the area. To commemorate it, the management of Palau Güell is presenting a cycle of discussions, featuring four free talks that will take place every Monday in May at 7pm in the building’s coach house (limited seating).
The discussions will be complemented by free specialised visits to the building every Saturday at 5pm led by some of the professionals who took part in the restoration work, which was carried out by the Local Architectural Heritage Service of the Diputació de Barcelona (SPAL), under the supervision of the director at that time, the architect Antoni González Moreno-Navarro.
The discussions will focus on issues related to the restoration and conservation of the building. On the 2nd of May, the head of SPAL, Joan Closa, and the Doctor in the History of Art, Raquel Lacuesta, will speak about the restoration method used. On the 9th of May, architect Mireia Barnadas and art historian Daniel Giralt-Miracle will discuss knowledge of the building and its value. On the 23rd of May, architect Xavier Guitart will focus on the intervention carried out and finally, on the 30th of May, architect Pau Carbó who was the main consultant on the conservation of Palau Güell until 2015 is scheduled to speak about the conservation of the building.
