- Better known as the Ayuntamiento, Casa de la Ciutat is located directly opposite the Generalitat in Plaça Sant Jaume. There are two ways to get in, via the neoclassical-style entrance on Sant Jaume or the Gothic-style entrance on Carrer Ciutat. Both lead you in to the 15th-century Saló de Cent (The Hundred Room) where the city's most important ceremonies and functions (awards ceremonies, book launches, conferences) take place. In the hallway, you'll pass impressive sculptures by Pablo Gargallo, Josep Llimona and Rebull as well one of Ràfols Casamada's paintings dating from 1982.
