ROOM 5

This wall belongs to the southern façade of the Renaissance palace reformed by Archbishop Hernando of Aragón in the middle of 16th century. Some blocks of stone from the Roman city wall were used for its construction, which are also visible in this room. This wall has been one of the biggest discoveries during the building restoration; same as the gothic gate from the chapel of Dalmau de Mur also situated in this room.
In front of the original wall form the 16th century, some works from the late Roman Empire and the Visigoth period are exhibited, introducing us in the beginning of the Middle Ages.
