Medical Center
“This is Barcelona’s first library, opened in 1895 after the death of journalist and Freemason Rossend Arús, who donated his house and collection. Today it’s a research center that works on social movements. The library looks like a museum, and is accessed through an impressive staircase. There’s a replica of the Statue of Liberty at the entrance. The building was constantly on watch during the Franco regime due to its connection with the Freemason world. Rumor has it that the library has several secret doors leading out of the building.”
