Here are six museums, very close to each other, in the heart of the city of Barcelona.

Silk House

It is the only union house in Barcelona open to the public with guided tours. The building, more than three hundred years old, was declared an architectural-artistic monument of national interest in 1919. In 1929, the museum won the Gold Medal of the city of Barcelona.

The facade is decorated with beautiful sketches and the niche on the corner balcony with Our Lady of the Angels stands out.

The interior houses decorative elements in beautiful rooms with silk-lined walls where the General Board of Commerce and Guilds used to hold their meetings.

Guided tours are one Saturday per month. Check the website.
