Fodor's Review

Once the arsenal for the Ciutadella—as evidenced by the thickness of the building's walls—this is the only surviving remnant of Felipe V's fortress. For a time it housed the city's museum of modern art, before it was repurposed to house the unicameral Catalan Parliament. Under Franco, the Generalitat–-the regional government–-was suppressed, and the Hall of Deputies was shut fast for 37 years. Call or go online to book and schedule a free 45-minute guided tour of the building in English; the grand "Salon Rose" is worth a visit in itself.
