The Historic Building of the University of Barcelona

Explore the Historic Building of the University of Barcelona in the company of an expert

A guided tour will take you to the most iconic parts of one of Barcelona's most iconic buildings.

Although we’re all familiar with the sight of the Historic Building of the University of Barcelona, which stands in Plaça Universitat, fewer of us will have gone inside to explore the interior of this magnificent architectural work, which was created by Elias Rogent back in 1863. The building has many hidden corners and beautiful halls and corridors that are crossed by crowds of students on a daily basis. The University of Barcelona has now decided to help the public to get to know its premises better through guided tours led by experts. The tours will take in the most outstanding areas of the building, including the Main Hall, the Staircase of Honour, the Rectorate and the Paranymph Hall, the true heart of university life and the setting for institutional events and the university’s most solemn ceremonies. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit the CRAI Rare Book and Manuscript Library, where they will be shown a small sample of the library’s bibliographical collection, which is one of the most important of its kind in Spain.

Tours, which take approximately one hour, are currently scheduled for 19 February, 2 April, 7 May, 11 June and 9 July. Check the UB website for specific times.

The tours are free of charge but you must book a place in advance. Additional information is available at the following link.
