Palau Reial Major (Royal Palace)

The medieval Plaça del Rei, heart of the Gothic Quarter, is thought to be the site of Columbus’s return from his first voyage to the New World, and packed with historic gems. The palace was the official royal residence, with a 14th-century banquet hall and Royal Chapel and 15th-century watchtower.
