It includes the Parliament and the City Council, both built 700 years ago and still in use, as well as the Royal Palace Complex, now a museum. Our expert guide will take you to concealed little squares and alleys to discover its hidden secrets. The old Synagogue and the ancient Jewish quarter are a demonstration of the importance of the Jewish Catalan community in the Middle Ages.
