Find out how people lived at the time it was built and explore the secrets hidden inside.
The construction of Palau Requesens began in the 13th century, though it acquired its current form in the 15th century, during the Gothic period, becoming the largest private palace in medieval Barcelona, inhabited by the Countess of Palamós. Although it now hosts the Royal Academy of Literature, it still retains its original structure, and has lots to offer to history buffs. On the guided tours on offer, anyone who has a ticket can explore what life was like in a Gothic palace. The visits, which are run by Sternalia, include a tour of the building guided by some of the characters who once lived there, such as Isabel de Requesens, the Viceroy of Naples. Evening visits include a welcome glass of cava and an exciting spectacle of sword fighting that will take you straight back to the 15th century.
Guided visits to Palau Requesens are held every Friday and Saturday from the 24th of August to the 15th of December, although tickets are already sold out for some dates.
Tickets for daytime visits costing €8 and tickets for evening visits costing €20 can be purchased at the following link.
