The amphitheatre where surgeons were trained

The history of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Catalonia

With these visits, you will be able to discover the building of this headquarters, one of the most important ones in Barcelona.

The company Sternalia invites you to discover the interior of the headquarters of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Catalonia (RAMC), a neoclassical building that had previously been the headquarters of the 'Real Colegio de Cirugía de Barcelona' and later, the Faculty of Medicine. You can learn about the history behind the rooms of the building, such as the spectacular anatomical amphitheatre where surgeons were trained, which was built by Ventura Rodriguez. Pere Virgili, Antoni de Gimbernat and Santiago Ramon y Cajal are other names that are also part of the history of the RAMC that you will discover in these visits.

On January 9, 2021, guided tours at the centre will start, which you will find in two modes: on Wednesday and Saturday there will be diurnal tours, at 10.30 am, 11.30 am and 12.30 pm, lasting 50 minutes and in various languages. On the other hand, on Saturday evenings there will be night tours, which will start at 8 pm and will include a mentalism show.

Diurnal tours cost 8 euros, while night tours cost 20 euros. In the first case, you can reserve your place by calling 933 210 125 or sending an email to reservas@sternalia.com, but also through the calendar on the website. In the case of night tours, you can only do so by phone or email. The information is detailed here.
