Once upon a time, when what is now the Duc de Medinaceli Square, there was the monastery of Saint Francis. A great architectural ensemble built during the 13th century in honour to the go by of the Saint by Barcelona, and which arrived from the current square to the Rambla. Mid 1835, took place the day known as the Burning of Monasteries. Saint Francis monastery suffered damages because of the fire and the community of monks where dismissed of the building, remaining deserted for a period of time. One year later it was entirely demolished. Once destroyed, the City Council decided to allocated there private buildings. In this context, in 1848 Pere Villoch purchased number 7 of the square and, a bit later, expanded the acquisition with number 8, the building known as Casa Villoch. The date that appear sculpted in stone in one of the sides of the inner courtyard, shows that most of the building works were done during 1852. The building is a paradigmatic example of the well-off residential neoclassic architecture of mid 19 century in Barcelona.
