A Gothic Palace from the 15th century

The House of L'Ardiaca was built in the 15th century by order of the Archdeacon Lluís Desplà, who converted his residence into a Gothic palace. In the 19th century, several owners made changes. In 1924 it became the site of the Historic Archive of the City. The current look dates from 1962, when the houses attached to the Roman wall were torn down.
