What will I see?

La Casa de la Seda is a 300 year old Baroque building, with beautiful sgraffito decoration on the façade, and a unique noble floor in the interior with silk-lined walls.It boasts elegance and solemnity representing the historic splendor and representation that the guild reached during the 1900s.

The architectonic and artistic value of the monument was demonstrated in 1919, when it was declared National Cultural Heritage, and in 1929 when it won the Gold Medal of the City of Barcelona.

The façade of la Casa de la Seda

Few buildings have such a detailed beautiful sgrafitto carvings on their façade. The women on it are more than 2 metres high and it has been maintained exactly as it was when la Casa de la Seda was built, in 1763.

The noble floor of la Casa de la Seda

The silklined walls throughout the noble floor will leave you speechless. Together with the woodwork and decorative elements, you can feel the luxury and distinction, especially in the main hall.

The main hall was where the meetings took place. Guilds were a decisive part in society and participated in commercial deals, political matters and even religious aspects. And it was also a place for society events, especially chamber music concerts.

The library has more than 3000 documents, some that go way back to 1533. You will have the chance to see some pictures where you can see the world in Barcelona since the early 1900’s.
