The area
Address
Neighborhood: Barrio Gòtico (Barri Gòtic)
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 musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.

This is a tiny archaeological and historical exhibition in Placa Villa de Madrid. Costs 2 euros to enter, but if you kept your ticket from any of the other history museums (the MUHBA ones) then entrance is free.
Basically it's one small room with several displays and a small walk in a 2000 year old cemetery. Nothing too special - except one thing. There is an ancient map of Europe, drawn short and wide. Really interesting. I spent about 10 minutes just looking at it and figuring out what is what.
If you're into history and archaeology (and maps) then it's a must, considering it's either free or really cheap. If it's not your thing, take a look at the cemetery from above and move on.

A very interesting stop on our walking tour. One can view these graves from the street level. So much history in this area. They say that you can view the tombs up close but the entry passage was not accessible during our stopover. Such a unique part of history nestled between modern buildings.

This is a small group of old Roman tombs in the middle of a square off La Rambla. The history is very interesting. I'm glad to see they built around the tombs and made them visible from street level (they are actually below street level).

The visit would take less than 30 minutes.

Like so many unique and interesting parts of Spain and Europe as a whole, you never know what interesting pieces of history are around each corner and it is worth a visit if nearby. I very much appreciate the preservation and the care taken to secure the tombs.

It is an amazing excavation, which shows Roman architecture and their life style. Wine making brewery is flawlessly protected. The video tour will explain neatly, how romans built structure, how they lived, life style etc. Minute details like how they washed clothes, maintained spa etc. Worth a visit to see the beauty of Roman culture

This Roman Necropolis, hidden for centuries under buildings demolished after the civil war, is just a few seconds off the top of the Rambla-go down Carrer Canuda. Entry is free if you have visited MUBHA or else a token euro but you can just as easily view the tombs from street level for free. I enjoy walking past and thinking about the history of the place each time I visit Barcelona. The necropolis, once outside the city walls of Roman Barcino gives you an indication of the importance of the Roman settlement.

It is located in Placa Villa de Madrid in the Old Town (Ciutat Vella) section. It is pretty close to La Rambla. In the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, Romans built their cemeteries outside of the city's walls and this excavation discovery of 70 tombs is an ancient Roman necropolis.

An elevated viewing wall looks down into the cemetery's sarcophagus collection

Its not very big and easy missed but is worth a quick stop if you are in the area, considering they are 2000 years old it is quite surreal to see it against the newer built up buildings around it and reminds you of the cities rich history. It is beautifully excavated and presented

Turn down Carrer Canuda at the top of the Ramblas and you will find these tombs. If you have a ticket from the Roman history museum, the entrance is free-otherwise 1 euro I think. Actually all the historical information is at the entrance and you can easily view the tombs by looking down from the road. You need only go down if you wish to read the Latin inscriptions-I had a free entry ticket and did so.

I'm a huge fan of italy and any chance I get to check out the local roman ruins, I'm there.

The Via Sepulcral Romana is very important. You can get right above the ruins, for free and get up close and get some nice photos. If you want, you can pay for entry in the small museum center but I think if you're in the area take 2 minutes to check these out. If you like Roman things, spend 10 minutes like us reading about the history of what they found in this square, how the face of the square has changed (buildings, etc.) and how over time they kept preserving these ruins. It's awesome!

I don't know what I was expecting, but this was a pleasant surprise. The city has turned this historic location into a useful park for the city, thus not wasting any space. It was very neat and the ruins were in good condition considering people could walk up and touch them...
