“From Romans to Middle Ages - a MUST visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

You have to visit this area and learn about Barcino (the Roman name for Barcelona), stroll the underground ruins and where the first Christina colonies were housed. This building is where Kings have been welcomed, Councils debated and Rules declared. Go up the stairs and venture inside, you will see a model of the city, with the different Walls that surrounded and protected Barcelona, from 1BC up until 1851, when locals pulled them down to free themselves from disease and over-occupaton.

“Back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

If you are interested in the history of Barcelona then a visit to this museum is a must. Amazing and informative. The museum is right behind the catherdral and was quiet hard to find from the map, but once found well worth it.

“Interesting Roman ruins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I was very impressed with the Roman ruins in this museum - the displays were very informative, and it was easy to imagine the lives and work that happened in Barcino hundreds of years ago. I definitely recommend a visit - especially if you can visit when it's free (I think it was Sunday after 3pm, but don't rely on my memory!).

“A little tough to find...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

But interesting Roman ruins, educational more than a lot of "wow" factor. Did have English audiotour, and most labels/handouts had english available as well.
