Montcada Street is located in the city of Barcelona in Spain.
Montcada Street was opened in the mid-twelfth century by the family of the same name in order to communicate the Barcelona neighborhoods Bòria and La Ribera. The lands were owned by the Montcada family and soon became the quintessential bourgeois way of the medieval city. Numerous palaces opened their doors to the street between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries, when the decline of bourgeois character of this street began.
Today this street is the core of the civil architecture of the most important medieval town and get at it magnificent examples of Barcelona’s civil Gothic architecture such as the palaces of Berenguer de Aguilar (home of the Picasso Museum), Cervelló-Giudice (Maeght Gallery) Dalmases, of the Llió Marquis (Rocamora Museum of wear), etc., all carefully restored and converted into headquarters of art galleries and museums.
