THE PALAUET CASADES
Barcelona Bar Association, is located in Mallorca Street,
between Roger de Llúria and Pau Claris streets.
The Palauet Casades shows us a type of architecture which has almost disappeared from the Eixample district. Built in the 1880’s as the residence of a wealthy family. Pau Casades i Espoy initiated the purchase of several plots which belonged to different owners in order to create one sole property on the chamfered corner between Mallorca and Roger de Llúria Street. His intention was to construct a single-family dwelling with an extension which would be the garden.
In 1924, Barcelona Bar Association purchased the residence of the Casades family, with a small garden space and outbuildings that were the old stables. Over the years, the Association increased their headquarters by purchasing plots and constructing a new main building at the beginning of the 1950’s. Finally, at the beginning of the 70’s, the last building work was commenced. The Bar Association has respected the original palace that is preserved today.
The Auditorium has a capacity of 350 people. It is circular in shape and covered with wood. The lighting is also overhead from a skylight that occupies the stalls. We must mention the two sculptures on the sides of the stage that represent Julio César and Palas Athena.Know more about Palauet Casades
