Fodor's Review

Now an art and historical museum, this Gothic palauet (townhouse) built by Tarragona nobility in the 18th century includes stunning furnishings from the 18th and 19th centuries. The last member of the Castellarnau family vacated the house in 1954. Casa Castellarnau is the headquarters of the city's Museu d'Història (History Museum), with plans showing the evolution of the city. The museum's highlight is the Hippolytus Sarcophagus, which bears a bas-relief depicting the legend of Hippolytus and Fraeda.
