Parlament de Catalunya

We invite you to visit the headquarters of one of the oldest parliaments in the world, Parliament of Catalonia, and know their roles

Following Barcelona's protracted resistance to the siege by Franco-Spanish troops, which was finally crushed on September 11th, 1714, the conquering Philip V felt the need to stamp his authority on Barcelona and thereby subject the whole of Catalonia. Today's Parliament Palace is the former arsenal of the fort he had built in order to achieve that aim.

At the end of the 5th legislature, Jordi Pujol, President of the Generalitat, and Joan Reventós, President of Parliament, signed an agreement with Joan Clos, Mayor of Barcelona, under which the Palace building in the park was donated for use by the Generalitat for as long as it remained the seat of Parliament.
