Fodor's Review

The neoclassical Virreina Palace, built by a viceroy to Peru in 1778, is now a major center for themed exhibitions of paintings, photography, and historical artefacts. The Tiquet Rambles office on the ground floor, run by the Catalan government's Institut de Cultura (daily 10 am–8:30 pm) is the place to go for information and last-minute tickets to concerts, theater and dance performances, gallery shows, and museums. The portal to the palace, and the pediments carved with elaborate floral designs, are especially beautiful.
