The Palau Reial or "Grand Royal Palace" is a complex of historic buildings in Barri Gotico. It was a residence of the counts of Barcelona and, later, of the Kings of Aragon. It is composed of three distinct edifices:
the Salo del Tinell, built by King Peter IV in 1359-1362
the Palatine Chapel of St. Agatha (1302), built under King James II
the Palau del Lloctinent (1549), built by Charles V.
