Palace of the Marqués de Dosaigües – National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts “González Martí”
The Palace of the Marqués de Dosaigües is the product of a radical reform carried out on the old manor house of La Rabassa de Perellós, holders of the Marquisate of Dosaigües, in the 1740s in a pronounced rococo style.
With an irregular quadrangular floor plan, organized around a courtyard and with towers at the corners, its facades rise with a ground floor and two heights, and on one side opens the main door, made in alabaster by Ignacio Vergara on design by Hipólito Rovira.
Presided over by the image of the Virgin Mary, two flows of water descend from it in allusion to the title of the Marquises, with two Atlanteans on the sides symbolizing two rivers, all with an appearance of overflowing voluptuosity. At that time the entire façade was decorated with frescoes by Rovira, but in 1867 the palace underwent a new remodeling -work of José Ferrer-, and in it the paintings disappeared, which were in poor condition due to humidity, being replaced by stucco in gray and pink tones imitating marbles, and in addition the balconies of French flavor were also made, with undulating railings. Inside we can still see today the eighteenth-century floats and the eighteenth-century rooms with their original decoration, recently restored, while the second floor houses the National Museum of Ceramics González Martí, with an important collection of pieces from Antiquity to the most modern designs.
