El Palau Reial de Pedralbes es un edifici situat enmig d'una amplia zona de jardins, al districte de les Corts, a Barcelona. Durant 1919-1931 fou la residencia de la Familia Reial Espanyola en les seves visites a la ciutat. Actualment el Palau alberga el Museu de Ceramica i el Museu d'Arts Decoratives i es la seu permanent de la Unio per al Mediterrani (UpM).

Historia i descripcio
El Palau te el seu origen a l'antiga masia de Can Feliu, del segle XVII. La finca fou adquirida el 1862 pel comte Eusebi Guell, junt amb la veina Can Cuias de la Riera. Juntes formaren la Finca Guell, de gran extensio (30.000 m?). S'encarrega la reforma de la torre Can Feliu a l'arquitecte Joan Martorell i Montells, que construi un palauet d'aire caribeny, acompanyat d'una capella neogotica i rodejat de magnifics jardins. Mes tard, s'encarrega a Antoni Gaudi la reforma de la casa i la construccio d'un mur de tanca i els pavellons de porteria.

Gaudi tambe s'encarrega parcialment del disseny dels jardins de la finca, construint dues fonts i una pergola, i plantant diversos tipus de plantes mediterranies (pins, eucaliptus, palmeres, xiprers i magnolies). Encara subsisteix la Font d'Hercules, restaurada el 1983; conte un bust de l'heroi mitologic grec, sobre una pila amb l'escut de Catalunya i un cano amb forma de drac xines.

Eusebi Guell cedi la casa i part dels jardins a la Corona, en agraiment pel seu nomenament nobiliari, el 1918. Llavors s'emprengue una nova remodelacio per a convertir-la en Palau Reial (1919-1924), a carrec dels arquitectes Eusebi Bona i Francesc Nebot. El palau esta format per un cos central de quatre plantes, amb una capella a la part posterior, i dues ales laterals de tres plantes que s'obren en corba a la facana principal. La facana exterior es d'estil noucentista amb porxos de columnes toscanes, obertures d'arc de mig punt amb medallons intercalats i gerros coronant la construccio. L'interior conte una diversa barreja d'estils, tant en decoracio com en mobiliari, que van des de l'estil Lluis XIV fins als estils mes contemporanis.

Els jardins van ser dissenyats per Nicolau Maria Rubio i Tuduri, a partir d'un projecte que integrava, en un tracat geometric decoratiu, gran part dels arbres ja existents, amb un estany i diversos elements decoratius, com una font obra de Gaudi, bancs de bambu, tres fonts lluminoses obra de Carles Buigas, diverses estatues, com la de la Reina Isabel II mostrant al seu fill Alfons XII que hi ha davant de l'entrada principal del palau, obra d'Agapit Vallmitjana.

El 1924 es converti oficialment en Palau Reial pero, al proclamar-se la Republica el 1931, passa a ser propietat de l'Ajuntament de Barcelona, que decidi insta?lar el Museu d'Arts Decoratives, inaugurat el 1932. Durant el regim franquista torna a ser residencia del cap de l'estat. El 1990 s'insta?la el Museu de Ceramica.

-----------------------------------

The Palau Reial de Pedralbes (Pedralbes royal palace) is a building placed in the middle of an ample garden in the district of Les Corts, in Barcelona. From 1919 until 1931 it was the residence for the Spanish Royal Family when they visited the city. It houses the Museu de la Ceramica (ceramic museum) and Museu d'Arts Decoratives (interior design museum).

The palace has its origins in the old Masia (farmer's house) de Can Feliu, from
the XVII century. The corresponding land was adquired by the count Eusebi Guell,,
along with the neighbouring Can Cuias de la Riera. Together they formed the Finca
Guell, an extensive parcel of land (30,000 m2). The Can Feliu building was remodeled
by the architect Joan Martorell i Montells, who built a Caribbean-style small palace,
together with a Gothic-style chapel and surrounded by magnificent gardens. Later the house remodeling was given to Antoni Gaudi, together with the construction of a surrounding perimeter wall and the side entry pavilions.
Gaudi also partially designed the gardens surrounding the palace, placing two fountains
and a pergola and planted many Mediterranean plants like palm trees, cyprus, magnolias
pine trees and eucalyptus. The Font d'Hercules (Hercules fountain) still exists today on
site, restored in 1983; it has a but of Hercules on top of a pillar with Catalonia's shield
and a cannon in the shape of a Chinese-style dragon.
Eusebi Guell gave the house and garden to the Royal family, as a thank you for his
noble title of Count given to him, in 1918. The house was then remodeled to become a royal palace.
The work was done from 1919 to 1924 by the architects Eusebi Bona and Francesc Nebot.
The palace is formed by a central building four stories high, with a chapel on the back
side and two three stories high side wings that form a curve with the front facade towards
the front. The outside facade is done in the Noucentista movement style with Tuscan-style
columns forming two porches, with round arches and medallions and jars











Noor -e- Jehan.




Noor -e- Jehan.





Empress Noor Jahan lies buried in a tomb not far from that of her husband, Emperor Jahangir. Once part of the Jahangiri cluster, the estate was bifurcated when the railway line was laid. To reach it today, you will need to travel west along the road that runs past Akbari Serai and the tomb of Asaf Khan. This road leads to a recently constructed underpass, traveling through which you will arrive at grade. However, instead of proceeding towards G.T. (Grand Trunk) Road you should take the turning to the left, which will lead you to your destination. Once Noor Jahan's chahar bagh had adjoined that of Asaf Khan's, but today Noor Jahan's tomb is situated across the railway line, to the southwest of the tombs of her brother and husband.

As you walk the tree-lined street leading to the tomb garden, the sepulcher, a low key single-storey structure can be seen in the distance amidst a grove of date palms. This is the abode of the most powerful Mughal empress, constructed by herself before her death, today aloof from traffic and the noise and bustle of people.

Mehr-un-Nisa (1577-1645), titled Noor Jahan Begam (Light of the World) and later Noor Mahal (Light of the Palace), was the daughter of Khwaja Ghiyas-ud-din Muhammad Ghiyas Beg Taharani, a migrant from Persia, who along with his family had fled to Hindustan, and rose to exalted positions in the cosmopolitan court of Akbar. She married Jahangir in the sixth year of his reign, and, because of her abilities, soon became the fountainhead of authority at the Mughal court. She is the only Mughal empress under whose name imperial receipts were issued and silver coins "struck in the name of the Queen Begam, Noor Jahan" were minted. She first became influential as a staunch ally of Prince Khurram (later Emperor Shah Jahan), the husband of her niece Arjumand Bano Begam or Mumtaz Mahal as she is better known.

A great patron of architecture, Noor Jahan had an abiding impact on the culture of the Mughal court. A poet and aesthete, she erected impressive edifices and gardens utilizing the enormous wealth at her disposal from the revenues of her jagirs (fiefs). Although she remained supremely powerful until the death of Jahangir, she lost to Shah Jahan in her struggle to maintain her ascendancy, in spite of the fact that she had Ladli Begam, her daughter from her first marriage married to Shahryar (1605-27), Jahangir's youngest son, As is well known, the last act of the drama for the acquisition of Mughal throne was played out in Lahore, when Shahryar was assassinated and Shah Jahan emerged victorious.

Noor Jahan, along with her widowed daughter Ladli Begam, lived in Lahore until her death in 1645, Shah Jahan having settled an annual allowance of two lakhs of rupees on her.

Although no longer evident due to filling around it, Noor Jahan's tomb was a chahar bagh rauza following the arrangement in the other two tombs of the group, and in the same manner it also stood on a podium.

Built on a smaller scale, the form of the sepulcher echoes the arrangement of Jahangir's mausoleum in its 20' high arcaded square marked with octagonal corners. The same arrangement of a slightly projecting central portion in each of its 134' sides is also reminiscent of the earlier edifice, though the corners, instead of rising like the impressive towers seen in the earlier structure, today stop short at the same height as the remaining building.

Early photographs of the mausoleum show its ravaged condition, where the bare shell, shorn of its decorative facing, with some traces of delicate fresco in internal muqarnas could be seen.

It was believed by 19th century writers that the marbles and other costly decorative items were removed from the sepulcher during the Sikh rule and utilized in the decoration of the Sikh temple at Amritsar. It is said that half the splendour of the Sikh temple in Amritsar is due to marble plundered from this mausoleum. Even the subterranean chamber containing the graves of Noor Jahan and her daughter Ladli Begam were desecrated, as was the marble and pietra dura of the sarcophagi. The original marble cenotaphs have disappeared. The existing cenotaphs and the marble platform are 20th century replacements.

In recent years, however, in an attempt to restore it, the monument has been made to look completely new, having lost the subtle traces of floral and geometric flourishes she so loved.
