Palau Mornau

Now a national monument, Palau Mornau was originally built in the 16th century as a palace for a noble family. In the early 20th century, the building underwent extensive renovations in the Modernista style by architect Manuel Raspall, who added stained glass windows, wrought iron balconies, and a faux stone façade. It underwent a 10-year renovation before the museum’s opening, and aspects of the museum’s theme were integrated into the new décor.
