Throughout its history, the house of the Fish Market, located so close to the fishing neighborhood of the Barceloneta, has been used for a number of purposes, which have all been linked with trade and seafaring life.
The building was built in the 14th century and was only a big porch where the merchants sold their products (especially fishermen). During centuries, it worked as a goods warehouse and commodity exchange.
It is a building that grew every century. This is how inside you can still see magnificent examples of medieval architecture in the Banking Hall and in the Hall of Consuls, while outside, fortunately much of the neoclassical style that was built in the XVIII century is preserved.
The current building has lost its original use, being used today for events and conferences.
