The so-called Set of Monuments in Plaça del Rei, formed by Palau Reial and Padellàs House, currently forms part of the spacious structure of the City History Museum of Barcelona. The Palau Real was a Count's Palace in the 11th century and later served for centuries as the residence of the kings of Aragón and Catalonia. The Padellàs house, housing the City History Museum, is a Gothic palace which was moved to this square, brick by brick, from its previous location at Mercaders Street in 1931. The visit to both sites can be complemented by a look around the archaeological subsoil of the square. The museum organises guided tours around the Jewish quarters of Barcelona and here you can also find the original headstone of Samuel Ha-Sardi, some of the Hebrew headstones at the Montjuïc cemetery and a scale model of the Banys Nous.
