Looking to the future while respecting the past

Mercer Barcelona is an innovative 5 star boutique hotel in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. It is housed in a group of historic buildings artistically restored under the direction of renowned architect Rafael Moneo, Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts 2012.

The hotel, built on a part of the Roman wall of ancient Barcino, preserves remains from several historical periods of enormous heritage value, including the medieval arches and the original 12th-century frescos which have been recovered to display and give a sense of Barcelona’s history.

The restored historical features are evident in virtually every area of the hotel including its rooms: wooden ceilings dating from the 18th century and the atrium, presided over by two 14th-century semicircular arches which are the only ones of their kind in Barcelona.
