Casa de l'Ardiaca Reviews
カテドラルの西側にある、ちょっと秘密の空間的な要素のある場所です。歴史的建物に囲まれており、外からは、その姿は想像できませんが、当時は数少ない許されし者だけが立ち入れたスペース。都会の中の静寂は不思議でした。 more »On the west side of the cathedral, it's a place with a bit of a secret spatial element. Surrounded by historical buildings, from the outside, you can't imagine the appearance, but at that time, the space was entered by only a few forgiving people. The silence in the city was strange.
Lugar de acceso gratuito a escasos pasos de la Catedral de la ciudad. Cuenta parte de la historia de la ciudad y tiene un hermoso patio. more »Place of free access a few steps from the cathedral of the city. It tells part of the history of the city and has a beautiful courtyard.
Beautiful house next to the cathedral with a lovely inner courtyard filled with flower and a palm tree. The house also has a small museum that does free exhibitions. Can be filled with tourists so get there early if you can.
Next to the Roman city wall is the entrance to the house of the Archdeacon (Casa del Arcediano) from the XII. Century , the Gothic-Renaissance residence of the archdeacon, which in 1920 became the property of the City of Barcelona and houses since 1921 and the historical archive of Barcelona. This medieval work was in 1924 declared a Heritage of cultural interest. The architect Domènech i Montaner added to the Renaissance portal a unique marble-mail box with three swallows , as well as a turtle, work of the sculptor Alfons Juyol. The Roman city wall can be seen inside the building on the ground floor. For those who have not studied the history of Barcelona, the most interesting part is the outer part, the patio (courtyard), the terrace and the "Salon des les pinyes" (pineapple salon). L'ou com balla (dancing egg) In the courtyard of the house of the Archdeacon a palm tree was planted in the late XIX century and next to it is a fountain, where at the Corpus Christi day (60 days after Easter Sunday) the traditional "l'ou com balla" (dancing egg) is celebrated, therefore the fountain is decorated with flowers and fruits and an egg is laid under water jet; the egg will not fall, but turns and truns and dances with the water. The tradition is not only celebrated in Casa de l'Ardiaca, but also in other churches or buildings of Barcelona, with cloisters, or patio and fountain, like in the Cathedral of Barcelona and the Barcelona Athenaeum.
