Built as a castle, temple and stately home. Today this Neo-Gothic building houses the Museum of the Pilgrims’ Ways.

Designed by Gaudí in 1887, work on the building began in 1889, but was halted in 1893, recommencing on the death of Bishop Grau, when the architect Luis de Querejeta took over from Gaudí.

The structure features a series of load-bearing walls supporting lancet arches in varnished brick. The palace has four state rooms: the Chapel, the State Dining Room, the Throne Room and the Official Office. Outstanding features include the masonry pillars, arches, circular portico and the angels that stand guard over the palace.
