In 1403 the Catalan government, which did not have a seat, decided to equip the institution with a building in accordance with its status.

From then on the Generalitat was housed in two buildings on Calle Sant Honorat, which were the first seat of the Catalan government, subsequently expanded, the Palau de la Generalitat now occupying the following streets: Sant Honorat, Carrer del Bisbe, Sant Jaume and Sant Sever.

The inner courtyards, such as the Pati dels Tarongers (Orange Tree Courtyard) stand out, as well as the 15th century Capilla de Sant Jordi (Saint George's Chapel), and the Salón de Sant Jordi, designed in 1596 by Pere Blai.
