Generalitat de Catalunya
Generalitat de Catalunya Review
Housed in the Palau de la Generalitat, opposite city hall, this is the seat of the autonomous Catalan government. Through the front windows of this ornate 15th-century palace the gilded ceiling of the Saló de Sant Jordi (St. George's Hall), named for Catalonia's dragon-slaying patron saint, gives an idea of the lavish decor within. The Generalitat opens to the public only on the Día de Sant Jordi (St. George's Day), April 23, during the Fiesta de la Mercé in late September, and on various other city or Catalonian holidays. The Generalitat hosts carillon concerts on Sunday at noon, another opportunity to see the inside of the building.
