We visited here as part of our shore excursion from our cruise. It is truly amazing how they find the ruins of ancient homes and civilizations when they dig beneath current buildings. Our guide did an excellent job of explaining everything. The history is wonderful.

The guide on our walking tour told us about this as we passed and we decided to go back and explore it further. We were not disappointed - it was well worth it with a good informative audio guide. Fantastic Roman ruins. Would recommend.

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
