La Diputació: Barcelona Provincial Council - The Building
This is a balcony on La Diputació de Barcelona (Barcelona Provincial Council). The building is located at Rambla de Catalunya, 126, almost touching Avinguda Diagonal.
This modernist house called Can Serra, was built from 1900 to 1907 by architect Puig i Cadafalch. In 1986 a new building was raised behind Can Serra, which really holds the administration offices.
Barcelona Provincial Council is divided into 12 departments that implement its program in the province of Barcelona: a network of 311 municipalities. Changing the subject, sure I can show you a more pragmatic shot of La Diputació building. Remember there was a previous post of mine back in April related to Sant Jordi where I published another picture of the council.
