Palau Moja Review
The first palace to occupy this corner on the Rambla was built in 1702 and inhabited by the Marquès de Moja. The present austere palace was completed in 1790 and, with the Betlem church across the street, forms a small baroque-era bottleneck along the Rambla. If there are temporary exhibitions in the Palau Moja, getting inside will also give you a look at the handsome mural and ceiling paintings by Francesc Pla, known as El Vigatà (meaning from Vic, a town 66 km north of Barcelona). In the late 19th century the Palau Moja was bought by Antonio López y López, Marquès de Comillas, and it was here that Jacint Verdaguer, Catalonia's national poet and chaplain of the marquess's multimillion-dollar Compañia Transatlántica shipping company, wrote his famous patriotic epic poem "L'Atlàntida."
