1 review

Dating back to the 18th century, Barcelona's House of Silk (La Casa de la Seda) was once home to the guild of silk-sail-makers in the city. The 300-year-old exterior reflects the elegance and social status that guilds had at the time and much of the original façade remains, rendering the home a popular stop among architecture aficionados. Visitors will encounter intricate Baroque work and a corner balcony featuring a figure of Our Lady of Angels, as well as interior rooms decorated with fine wood, silk walls and religious items, such as an ivory Christ figure and a 17th-century cabinet decorated with religious paintings.

Today, the House of Silk is home to the College of Mayor Art Seda de Barcelona. Guided tours take visitors through the guild hall, presidential office, meeting room and the library, which holds more than 3,000 historical documents.

Whether interested in Barcelona history or simply an admirer of beautiful homes, a visit to the House of Silk is a great way to learn about the national culture of the city throughout years past.
