HISTORY OF A BOUTIQUE HOTEL
HISTORY OF A PALACE OF BARCELONA
During the XVI century the property in front of the port of Barcelona was in the Cardona family’s hands. Lineages like the Gualbes, the Montcadas or the Queralts also built their residences in this prestigious avenue, lodging also the Royal Court during its luxury stays in the city of Barcelona.
The present construction was finished in 1850 , when the original building was enlarged in an eclectic style under a neoclassic inspiration. Its most noble face was the one that could be opened from Mercé Street - our breakfast restaurant today - , and not he one facing the port; However ,due to the sea wall disappearance in 1888 ,the Passeig Colom face became the most visible one.
