Buy your entry tickets online to the House of Silk, one of Barcelona's numerous architectural gems. This is a building which is described by many people as being the most beautiful in the city thanks to its imposing elegance. It is located in the heart of Barcelona, just 2 minutes on foot from the Palau de la Música Catalana and just a short distance from the Plaça de Catalunya. You can visit the interior of the House of Silk by buying your entry tickets in this section.
The House of Silk was built by the architect Joan Garrido Bertranè, as the headquarters of the Guild of manufacturers of silk fabrics, in other words, for one of the most influential Catalan institutions of the 18th century. Therefore, the building will unquestionably impress you with its elegance and its almost regal atmosphere. During your visit, you will be able to admire the guild's magnificent rooms with their walls hung with silks, richly decorated carved wood panels and an elegant style that sets the building apart. The Library, which is decorated with the association's stunning collection of floral and religious pictures, also contains more than three thousand documents which have preserved the history of the Guild. There is also the majestic presidential office in which you can see ivories from the 18th century and the Reception room where so many important political and commercial decisions were made.
There are three great advantages for those who opt to buy their entry tickets online rather than at the ticket office. The first is that you will save a lot of time because you won't need to queue at the ticket office. The second is that quite often, the ticket offices can levy a charge which varies from €2.00 to €6.00. And the third reason is that at the ticket office, you can only buy tickets for the day whereas when you buy online, you can purchase tickets for a time and date of your choosing.
Shortly after effecting your purchase, you will receive an email with attachments in PDF format. The attachments will have the logo of the House of Silk, the entry code, the date, the time slot and the number of people for whom the booking has been made. Once you have down-loaded the files, you will be able to print off your entry tickets or download them onto your mobile phone.
In the event that the date or the time slot that you requested are unavailable, we will suggest an alternative which is the closest to your original request. Barcellona.shop will refund the cost of the tickets in the event that a time slot cannot be found which suits the client's requirements.
Entry ticket prices: Adults €13.00, children under the age of 11 enter for free, pensioners (over 65 years of age) and students or young people under the age of 18, will be charged €11.00. Please note that, for groups that consist of more than 9 people, it will be necessary to make a group booking.
