Casa de la Vall – Old Parliament Building Jan 16, 2017
Originally built in 1580 as a manor for the Busquet family, it has become one of the most recognizable buildings in the country. In 1702, it was acquired by the "Country Council" which later became the state's parliament. The medieval appearance was largely maintained, including the two beautiful turrets (formerly used as pigeonries), the facade with many odd stones in it as well as the coat of arms of the Busquet family.

Casa de la Vall was replaced by a new parliament building in 2011. Now, the old building is used as a courtroom, as official see of the parliament and also by some authorities which have their administration offices in there.

You can not visit the inner parts of the building on your own. There are guided tours possible which however have to be booked through their reservation line in advance. Their website is unfortunately in Catalan only, but you will find the contact details at the bottom. One of the highlights of the tour is the so-called "Closet of Seven Keys" a medieval safe for the most important documents. Each of the representatives of the parishes was given one key and only with all seven keys, it was possible to open the safe.
