The regional Parliament of Catalonia represents the people of the Autonomous Community and it elects the President of its regional government (Generalitat). It's housed in the former arsenal of the citadel garrison fortress. This building became the seat of the Catalonian Parliament in 1932 and then it was restored as Parliament in 1980. It was designed by the Flemish engineer Prosper de Verboom.
