"Archdeacon's Gothic House"

The cathedral archdeacon's 16th-century residence was built on top of a ruined 12th-century building, over the ancient Roman walls of the city. The cloister, Renaissance patio and its Gothic-style central fountain are outstanding period pieces. Modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Muntaner added a witty postbox by the front door. The swallows carved on it represents the hope for quick delivery of justice, whilst the tortoise is a symbol for obstructions. Climb up to the top to enjoy beautiful views of the courtyard below and the surrounding areas.
