Palau Robert and its history throughout the ages

You’ll see some of the most important buildings in Barcelona as you make your way down Paseo de Grácia, a street that has been home to much of the noble history of this city. Palau Robert is located on the final section of the street, next to Avenida Diagonal, and takes its name from its first owner, Robert i Surís, a politician and economist of the 18th century.

This grand palace dates back to 1898 andwas initially built as the main residence for the Robert i Surís family. But years later, after several successive owners, it passed into the hands of the public authorities at the start of the 1980s.

Palau Robert in modern times

The government of Catalunya decided to completely reform the structure, interior and gardens of the palace to rectify some of the damage caused by the passing of time. Now fully renovated, it is exclusively devoted to promoting Catalan tourism.

With this in mind, Palau Robert is home to many concerts and vast art exhibitions. It has a library and an area dedicated solely to being a cultural centre. The Palace Gardens are open to the public, we recommend you make a stop here to relax and immerse yourself in the history of these beautiful gardens.

To round off its role as a centre for tourism and culture, a Tourist Office was created inside the palace, to explain and promote sightseeing routes throughout Barcelona.

You can visit Palau Robert for free on Monday through Saturday from 10:00 to 20:00 and on Sundays and public holidays from 10:00 to 14:30. You can get there by foot, by bus using lines 6, 7, 22, 24, 33, H8 and V15, or on metro lines 3 and 5.

At HCC Hotels, we recommend you plan a route that takes in all the best palaces in Barcelona and enjoy the vivid history of this wonderful city.
