‘Escala d’Honor’ stairs in the Historic Building entrance hall

The Historic Building and the Conciliar Seminary open to everyone

The University of Barcelona is offering guided tours to show the general public these amazing buildings in the city’s architecture.

The University of Barcelona History Building and Conciliar Seminary, both built in the mid-19th Century, are both key pieces in Barcelona's architectural image. Elias Rogent, Gaudí’s teacher, designed both of the buildings, deemed to be some of the city's best hidden secrets, even though they are the two most significant works of his career. The Historic Building currently houses the head offices of the University of Barcelona and it is where the Language, Literature and Mathematics Faculties are located. What’s more, they have always caught people’s eye and have been used as the backdrop for filming and events. To give you the chance discover the buildings, the University of Barcelona is offering a series of guided tours of these gems of the Eixample neighbourhood.

The first tour will run on 21 January, and there will be one each month until 14 July. All the tours will start in the entrance hall in the History Building of the University of Barcelona (Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 585) and will last roughly 90 minutes.

There are only thirty places available, so you’ll need to register in advance to take part. You can send an email to visitesguiades@ub.edu or call 934 020 202. You can find all of the information and times on the University of Barcelona website.
