Long Description:
[ES]
situado en el Paseo de Santa Madrona, fue obra de Josep Maria Ribas i Casas y Manuel Maria Mayol. De estilo ecléctico, presenta soluciones estructurales basadas en diversos estilos: el cuerpo central se inspira en la arquitectura palaciega española del siglo XVIII, mientras que los laterales remiten a la arquitectura civil del norte de Italia y las logias evocan las villas mediterráneas de gusto novecentista. Debido a su situación elevada, en su acceso se situaron unas terrazas con fuentes luminosas. Desde 1982 es sede del Instituto Cartográfico de Cataluña.
