Duquesa de Cardona Luxury Boutique Hotel is located in a building that originally belonged to the Dukes of Cardona in the 16th century. It was restored in 1850 as a Romanesque-style building and used as a residence for the Barcelona bourgeoisie. It opened its doors as a hotel in 2003.
Located in a stately building dating back to 1850, Duquesa de Cardona Luxury Boutique Hotel enjoys a prime setting, opposite Barcelona's Port Vell, just a few metres from the beach and Las Ramblas, surrounded by various monuments of historical interest in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. Our hotel is the perfect base for enjoying the best cultural, leisure and gastronomic attractions in the city.
More than 2,000 years old, Port Vell, which starts at the end of the Ramblas, where the statue of Columbus is located, was once one of the key ports of the Mediterranean.
This basilica, known as the "Cathedral of La Ribera", is the only church in the pure Catalan Gothic style and was the temple of the shipowners and merchants of medieval Barcelona. Santa Maria del Mar was built in the 14th century and its structure consists of three naves with sober and very tall columns every 13 metres, a space not surpassed by any other medieval building in the world.
The Born neighborhood houses different monuments and museums that are worth visiting. From the imposing Palau de la Música, a modernist work by the architect Domènech i Montaner, which combines elements of sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and wrought iron in its ornate and unique façade to the Picasso Museum.
Once the Sea Wall was demolished, work began on the urbanization of Passeig de Colom, with the aim of providing Barcelona with a stately promenade for the Universal Exposition of 1888, the year in which it was officially inaugurated.
Located in a historic building, which in the 16th century belonged to the aristocratic dynasty of the Dukes of Cardona and which was restored in 1850 as a residential building for the bourgeoisie, the Duquesa de Cardona Luxury Boutique Hotel offers you a cozy and elegant atmosphere, with a close and familiar treatment and a personalized service.
