Palace square (Pla de Palau). House of canons regular (Cases dels Canonges)

After passing to the left of the Cathedral square along the Carrer Escrivanies Velles and turning onto the Mare de Déu del Claustre, you will see the house of canons (Cases dels Canonges on the map), built in the 19th century in neo-Romanesque style. The author of the project, architect August Font i Carreras, completed the first floor in Romanesque style, which is visible from the Windows and the portal, covered by an arch of wedge-shaped stones. Gothic features are clearly visible in the design of the second-floor Windows.

On the square in 1963, a statue of Saint Paul (Estàtua de Sant Pau on the map) was erected on the occasion of the 1900th anniversary of the visit of the Apostle to Tarragona. This event, of course, from the field of legends and legends, but in Tarragona it was celebrated very widely. The author of the sculpture is Victor de los ríos (Víctor de los Ríos).
