(English) Baroque palaces in Barcelona that you can’t afford to miss: Palau Moxó

By | 20 November, 2018 | 0 comments

Barcelona is a city with plenty to admire around each and every corner. But in this blog post, we’ll introduce you to one of the best palaces in Baroque style you can visit in the city, the Palau Moxó.

Palau Moxó

History and charm in the Gothic Quarter: Palau Moxó

The Moxó family commissioned the construction of a grand palace in 1770 that would go on to become their main residence in Barcelona, Palau Moxó. The location chosen was the Gothic Quarter, and after acquiring a 13th century medieval residence to build on, construction soon began on this impressive Baroque palace in earnest.

Palau Moxó retains its original 18th century structure to the present day, and that’s just one of the reasons it remains so special to the city, the fact it has remained standing for so long, even during the bombings of the Spanish Civil War that destroyed much of the palaces of the time.

Even today, its furniture and interior decoration are still the originals that were designed and created by Francisco Mestres for the palace’s opening.

Visits and activities at Palau Moxó

Recently, Palau Moxó decided to open its doors to the public for a range of activities and guided tours. On any visit, you can access every corner of the palace, except for the state rooms currently occupied by the Moxó family who still live there to this day.

The building is made up of 4 floors with 700m2 of space on each, a large palace that had all the noble features of its time, including stables, access to carriages, state rooms, reception rooms, dining rooms, as well as a large ballroom that has always impressed visitors. On the ballroom ceiling, you’ll see a large fresco that pays homage to the seasons and the signs of the zodiac.

Located on Plaza Sant Just, near the Palau de la Generalitat, you can visit Palau Moxó on Fridays to admire and relive this fully intact 17th century residence in modern day Barcelona.
